How did David playing soothing music for Saul cause the distressing spirit sent from God to leave Saul?

"And whenever the distressing spirit from God was upon Saul, David took the lyre and played it with his hand. So Saul was refreshed and was well, and the distressing spirit departed from him."

Did the soothing music simply make Saul feel better, or did it drive out the distressing spirit?
