Looking at Listening

Introducing a new blog about music and the mind

Listening

            The trouble is we’re not accustomed to talking much about our musical experiences, and it can sometimes look like we’re pretty passive listeners – sitting with our hands folded in a concert hall, for example. In this blog, I’d like to explore how much is going on “under the hood” even while people are listening silently. After all, if fascinating things weren’t going on, how could music have come to mean so much to so many people?

             Stay tuned for Looking at Listening!
