Layered listening

What is Layered listening - once or twice each day pause and listen to the sounds around you.

Listen for the loudest and softest and find the layers of sounds.
Listen for silence- listen for the spaces between sounds.
Listen for patterns of tension and release in music.
Listen for emotion: tragedy,sadness, gloom, jubilation.

Why do these sounds affect you as they do?

(an excerpt from a book -"How to think like Leonardo Da Vinci")
