Proposal: How To Listen To Music

Proposed by hyksos

53Ŧ pledged by: Untitledbodies, Laura3000

Needed to be considered for scheduling: 100Ŧ total, from minimum of two users


'How To Listen to Music' will be a regularly occurring (monthly, or whenever anyone wants to lead one) experimental interaction that will look at one topic in music – one particular artist, or piece of sound, or genre, or instrument, or whatever.

The idea of 'How To Listen to Music' is to get beneath the surface of a particular musical work, incorporating external contexts such as film screenings, readings, etc as well as collective listening and perhaps even performance/interpretations.

Each meeting will be led by a different person, who can organise participants however they would like. I imagine it myself as some sort of combination of performative lecture with A/V components, listening party, and workshop to interpret and recreate the music in question.

I'm happy to start with the first one, which will be on the subject of Albert Ayler. If you have an idea to lead a session, leave a comment here and we'll figure it out if this experiment gets enough pledges to be scheduled.
