Sorry to be unclear. I meant One, the other, or both as is appropriate to the context--is how it is for me.

Can you give an example for each of the three possible types how you react? Three songs or three situations?

Other than English madrigals I hardly every listen to music with English words. The vast majority of my listening is to purely instrumental music. Anyway at present I am working on realizing (recording) the second part of a two part composition. The first part is a highly structured fugue: Exposition, episode, stretto, episode stretto. While working on the second part I go back to listen to the first for various purposes. Most often it is to simply have the aesthetic experience it offers—to feel again what it is saying. For that I close my eyes and still my mind. Sometimes I have some analytic interest in the expressive parameters and want to I analyze how I got a particular effect. In this case I consciously focus on particular elements of the piece such as volume envelops, anticipation etc. In these cases I try to have a foot in each camp—the analytic and the emotional. If for some reason I wanted to do analysis of the structural elements, then I would try to focus my attention on aspects of linear texture, theme and general tonal context (as I don’t really use keys). And I would try to exclude emotional/saliency aspects from my attention so they don’t make me miss some technical element.

If I am listening for what it says musically/emotionally I try to do it as a meditation with my mind filled only with sound. Then I have no more interest in techniques than I would have in the grammar used by Ferlinghetti while listening to someone read “Constantly Risking Absurdity”

i think that music is one of the most important part of our collective past.
It has been well analyzed; sound, rythm, harmony, separated scientifically to improve all technics.
this couldn't be music, i mean inspirated, without a present beeing,
a maximum implication in what we do, as when we do good in life.
and a presence of a chaos microcosm variable inside of quater notes,that i call groove...
anyway i agree to say that Bach, even with the kitchest windows sound, with midi files woul still sound good!
bloody mathematics! Smile
