The Art of Listening is a documentary film about the journey music takes to reach a listener’s ear. From the intent of an artist, to the producers and engineers who capture and preserve a recording. This journey is narrated by intimate conversations with artists, engineers and producers about the philosophy of their work and the intent behind each musical note they create.
This film is an invitation for music fans to rediscover the intricacies and details available in their favorite recordings.
The Art of Listening is the beginning of a conversation of how the quality of our listening experiences defines the medium. In a world where people mostly watch DVD quality videos on Youtube, it is a pity audio streaming is most of the time compressed mp3, which does not allow a compelling listening experience.
However, it seems mainstream music streaming platforms are slowly moving towards providing CD quality tracks to their subscribers. And that is great news for the world!
