The first lesson I learn from musicologist Tyler Kinnear is, “Once you start listening, it’s impossible to stop.”
Tyler has a particular listening practice, and in this story, he shares it with me. You’ll find it all on The Banff Centre Blog , including tape of the time I spent in the woods with Tyler, going through his listening routine.
In the spirit of listening to the whole world, as it unfolds around you, I’ve left the tape uncut. Enjoy.
