Proposal for a Reappraisal of Listening

Mara Genschel, Martin Schüttler
There is an implicit agreement about listening
as an essential factor when dealing
with music. This apparent matter-offactness
has a mostly affirmative effect
on the conditions of production of music,
so that certain kinds of music can be assigned to certain postures of listening. Composer Martin Schüttler and writer Mara Genschel sketch a small typology of listening to create the possibility to reverse in a positive way the polarity of the existing relationships to perception in the artistic practice.
