Understanding development in psychoanalytic theory is of fundamental importance both as part of its theoretical framework and as a foundation for technical and clinical interventions. In this sense, the great relevance of the word in the establishment of affective bonds through language is recognized. However, sound, a primordial and pre-word element, has not been widely studied in psychoanalysis. With this in view, the present project intends to seek a link between the sound and musical properties of the voice present in the phenomena of the motherese and the lullaby with the first bonds established in the mother / baby relationship. The work will have the objective of analyzing the psychoanalytic production, mainly of the Lacanian and Winnicottian tradition, considering the classical and contemporary theorizations about the subject in order to understand how the sonorous-musical elements affect the process of erotization and subjective constitution that will enable the establishment of the first object relations. We understand that this investigation is relevant in view of the need for expansion of theoretical psychoanalytic knowledge on the subject that, in the future, may base technical improvements in the treatment of patients in moments of pre-linguistic development or who have compromised access to the resources of language verbal.
