This etude extends on what it means to listen – to take the time to try and hear things with more attention, or even with a ‘new’ ear. Musicians are so accustomed to using their ears, that perhaps they sometimes forget to listen to everyday life with new attention. This etude proposes one way for musicians to open themselves up to being reflexive by reconsidering what it is that they may take for granted – to re-attend to what they already know: listening.
