The ear does not just listen to music: it informs it to appreciate and evaluate it. Listening is made of circulations: it reflects itself in discourses which make visible representations, that constitute the musical experience. It becomes incarnate in practices and rituals which individually or collectively outline their object to better assurer the listening experience's success, which can not happen without its multiple mediations, whether social, symbolic or material.
