The article presents selected issues of the role of music in an every-day life of contemporary
people. The background of considerations constitutes a biocybernetic perspective of the issue in
question. The work briefly discusses a psychological and subjective dimension of musicotherapy
on the one hand, and, on the other, the attempts to indicate the methods of the objectivisation of
the influence of music on man.
The issue of artotheraphy, especially in its desired and positive understanding, being a general
message of the work in question, is refereed to the analysis of potential possibilities of the
objectivisation of the evaluation of the emotional condition of man. The receiver, under the influence
of music, reaches personally changeable emotional states, usually defined on a psychological
ground, but, what is also important, generates measurable signals conveying the information
on he physiological condition. In an international terminology this very area of knowledge has
been recently defined as “kansei engineering”.
