The properties of organic opto-electronic materials are governed by the whole collective as molecular aggregates. Accordingly, the key factors and the control strategies for the structures of molecular aggregates are reviewed by the investigation of mechanoluminescence and organic room temperature phosphorescence materials. The concept of Molecular Uniting Set Identified Characteristic (MUSIC) was proposed by concerning the similarity in the construction of opto-electronic materials and the symphonic performance as real "music", highlighting the key role of molecular aggregates.
