Music is not only a field of knowledge or an art but is also life which is considered as a philosophy. The purpose of this research is to show the relationship between music and philosophy in the light of Gestalt theory. In doing so, some musical pieces of the Algerian musician Ahmed Malek who left his fingerprint in the Algerian artistic field were selected and analyzed as a case study. The result shows that his music is composed of part-whole, a quality, and a dependency and is not made haphazardly but after a deep research, where the musical note MI recurs in all the performances except for one performance that represents the film “Whiteand Black”.
