forget about music, music and audio are separate entities in they should be treated separately. I have written a lot about it before.
In the realm of pure audio “it” exists as a moment of realization. The entire truth however about the “it” is that “it” is not specific to composer, type of music, type of artistic direction or even the type of human actively. The “it”, as the moment of realization might expose itself via many different “instructions” in many types of human activities. The cross-viewing the manifestations of the “it” is a devilish fun itself, but it is another subject…. So, how the “it” expose itself in audio?
Well, de do have already built up with ourselves all necessary element of our reaction’s adequacy to audio sensations, we just need use proper listening techniques to found the way of our awareness to reach the “pre-answered questions”. I have developed quite a few of them (SLT, PSLT and a few others) and they do work wonderfully. It is not about the “quantification those amazing affects” but rather to learn how to assess the “effects” … without quantification.
Let me to give you an illustration. When you hear that an instrument, let say a violin, is out of tune then you do not instantaneously quantify that the G string is too high. Your first reaction is that “something is wrong” and then, when your mind is activated you judge the pitch of the G string. That initial rejection I call Raw Rejection. It is very far from the “moments of realization” but pretend that there are ways to extend the period and the most important the depth of the Raw Rejection, proposing the time when mind-bases assessment kicks in. if to do so, then the perception of audio happens at the level of Raw Consciousness and it is a VERY powerful tool.
How far it is from the realization of the “audio it”? This is VERY freaky question as by removing the Cooked Consciousness out of audio we discover that there is no difference between live and recorded musical events. So, simplifying everything, the “it” in audio might be vied as a realization of own perception, discovering how to naturally filter the entire audio component out of sound reproduction. After that, the audio component becomes a tradable and a manageable commodity that is easy to control.The Cat
