Aural perseveration can be defined as an experience of sound when its concrete prompt has ceased sounding. From spontaneous musical imagery, such as earworms, to the shift of a soniconceptual gestalt, the diversity of sensations entailed by aural perseveration can be crosscut with a ‘deep but hidden analogy’ (Poincaré) between them formalizing an infra-realism (Matta, Couroux). Continuing an on­going project investigating the ‘,kataphysics of sonic identity’, this presentation seeks to explore questions raised by these auditory phenomena and trace the conceptual dynamics at play.
