Any musical experience is innately pertinent to cognition and psychology. This paper discusses various aspects of musical cognition, including notions of timbre in relation to spectromorphology, a term coined by Denis Smalley, a notable writer on aesthetics of electroacoustic music. Furthermore, a cognitive model will serve to explain inherent inter-relationships involving multi-modal perception.
