“An Emergent Map”
I’ve just received a note about the Why We Listen podcast from Daniel Coffeen:
“What struck me is that this project gets more interesting the more there are — each is a fundamentally different way of listening to music. Taken together, your project is like an infinitely complex cubist painting, all these different perspectives meeting at odd angles (or not at all) to create something huge and elusive: an emergent map of modes of listening.”
I really like the map analogy. I sometimes think of Why We Listen as a map of places I’ve never been. Charting the subjective listening experiences of others.
My interview with Daniel will be up in a few days. Stay tuned!
