A deep dive into the world of deep listening
Originally published on September 20, 2017
When we listen to music we tend to only hear the melodic lines — but what if you stop and listen to the way a piano chord echoes? Or how a cello string reverberates? This idea is at the heart of "deep listening," a philosophy that embraces intentional listening to learn.
It comes from music scholar and composer Pauline Oliveros and has been embraced by musicians all over the world, including Calgary electronic musician Sarah Davachi. She gives us a q gateway to deep listening and explains why it's a valuable tool in an increasingly loud world.
