I claim in this paper that we should cross the analytical approaches of classical music and of popular music. To begin with, I suggest a description of the musical work considered as a combination of three types of elements, or zones, that address different kinds of listeners. Firstly, the structural aspect addressing a future listener, or analyst; secondly, elements aiming at a communication with an actual audience, consisting of images or affects; thirdly, elements recurring to sound and repetitive rhythms, addressing the listener’s body. Each zone, articulated in a different way within classical or popular musical works, may be better described when the analytical results concerning both domains are combined.
