Listening to Music

When you’re listening to music, do you like to know what causes all the sounds you’re listening to? Or do you prefer the mystery of not knowing how the sounds are being made?

Personally, I’m kind of a hybrid. I like to know a lot of the different sources of sounds use in music production, but then I graciously accept those sounds whose origins I cannot determine. Gives the whole thing a little bit of mystery. I like music.

So which one are you? Do you prefer to know what’s making the sounds that are hitting your ears, or do you prefer to not know? Or do you not think about it at all? I’m very curious.

    Yeah, a little of both. I can enjoy it plenty without thinking about the production value or how they found the sound. But whenever I do really think about it or learn about the production somehow, it’s pretty damn interesting. Sometimes you realize why a particular song sounds so uniquely the way it does or you can value how much work went into the production and recording. There’s a pretty good youtube series called “What makes this song great?” that I poke into sometimes.
