Description Music creates a unique space: it is perceived as something that unites people, but in reality it seems that very often everyone is alone in listening to music. This is evidenced by the special incommunicability of the experience of music, by the desire of people to close in on solitude with music, only with headphones, and finally by the genius of compositions by music composers affected by hearing loss, such as Smetana and Beethoven. It is an escape into isolation, but also an invitation to share.
