Some topics are so fundamental to the practice of music making that they come up at Loop again and again, in many different conversations and in a variety of contexts. One such theme is the importance of listening. It’s hard to imagine working on music without the hours spent listening to our own work, not forgetting the time we spend appreciating and taking inspiration from the work of artists we admire. Many Loop participants, from composers and producers to engineers and archivists, have shared stories about what listening means to them. In this video, we hear five individual insights on listening from Susan Rogers, Young Guru, Mandy Parnell, Matthew Herbert and JD Twitch.
