[Fis] FIS in IS4SI (& Sentic Forms!)

   I had too a sort of emotional phenomenon listening to a small segment (a
few seconds) of one specific aria, that evoked tears and I had no idea why.
I tried to analyse it, asked my friends' and colleagues' opinions, and they
concurred that it was a mixture of melody and the voice of the singer (it
did not occur with another singer). This phenomenon also occurs with just
music without voice, e.g. I have heard the music of cinema paradiso finale
evokes tears in any people. Perhaps old Manfred was right in that  tehre is
some kind of code impressed in the brains responding to particular
sounds/melodies, I would not be surprised because in many animals, like
birds, this form of communication is essential, and I am sure some of those
bird songs evolved to evoke "feelings" in otehr little birdies, whatever it
is they feel. In any event, for us humans this seems very specific
depending on the individual: to me Rosalia's song does not evoke much,
other than a nice voice.
