Music has deeply affected humanity throughout history; hearts are won, wars are started, sacred rites initiated, and rulers crowned to the backdrop of music, which serves to mystically reinforce these events. From a depth psychology perspective, music summons archetypes, the ubiquitous energetic source of relational dynamics that engage psyche in the dance of life. Using artistic-creative methodology, this production thesis demonstrates and examines the process of manifesting archetypal energy through music. The same short film is set to four different music scores, each of which manifest a different archetypal energy and therefore provide a different relational meaning to the film. The thesis examines the intersection of archetypes and music based on literature from the fields of depth psychology, music, and neurobiology. Clinically, this thesis can be helpful in exploring the implications of archetypal manifestation in clients' listening habits.
