Actually, I already 'perceive' these as acoustic music. It usually
helps (me) to use definitions that differentiate one object from
another, rather than to search out permutations of a word to indicate
everything (=nothing).

 Many things (all actually) involve electricity (1 u = 1.6605 x 10-27
kg = 931.5 MeV) but no one calls a chair an electrical device just
because its mass can be measured in electron volts.

The charge that mediates the events in the nervous system can hardly
be viewed as an electrical circuit. No spark "jumps the gap" at the
synapse.

You WILL see some ions moving within and around the presynaptic nerve
(and the post-synaptic), but notice that free ions don't cross the
gap. It isn't an electrical action. It's a neurochemical one (or one
aspect of it is).
