Just bought Doombient.two - want to give it a proper listen on something better than the computer speakers....

Flicking along the tracks as I did I thought the music was varied and am looking forward to listening properly.

I did not find it as aggressive as you described, but then listening to something that recorded such a difficult experience as you describe is going to have an impact....

Thanks for the heads up on MusicBee. The best feature IMO is the gapless playback. Flawless.

Watched the movie last night...interesting but felt like something was missing. Most of the focus in on the musicians as Julio said. The pieces by Chris Willits sounded nice. I'd like to get his soundtrack eventually.

Thanks Jana for posting the full video.... a lot to think about.  This is clearly musicians enjoying talk about their passion for sound.  I thought from the trailer it might lean towards the listener / music fan a little more but not so though it does express the passionate energy wrapped up in the process of recording music first and foremost for the listener.

I really understood how music is an energy that works on a different level than just what we perceive as hearing it.

Also really adhere to the "quality" of sound the video suggests we strive for and how we so short change our listening experience with inferior quality playback.

It was a rhetorical question followed by a supposition that does not have a specific intent beyond summation.

Here is my answer:

The word "art" has many meanings. We do not exactly know what the film "The art of listening" has to say about the word "art" until we watched it.
You asked us (the forum) what we would think about the term "art of listening". Also, you told us your definition.

You used a traditional definition, you said "listening" is not an "art". When I say "the art of listening" is an "art" i refer to the many meanings the word has.
I often use the words in a transcendental meaning. Sometimes this confuses others. I myself am often confused by rhetoric.

PS:

The film is now available to watch:

The new Halftribe falls into this category.  It even says lo-fidelity in the title.

https://archivesdubmusic.bandcamp.com/album/daydreams-in-low-fidelity

It's a good recording, so I'll call it hi-fidelity lo-fi.  Soft noise and ambient synths.  Not much crunchy sounds or clicks.

I reviewed this on my blog. It's a very good album.

I think the issue with Rapoon is that people are quick to put them in the "ethno-ambient" category. Same thing with Dead Voices on Air.

Dunno if anyone in this thread is into Hands To/Jeph Jerman, but that stuff is pretty lo-fi. It doesn't fit Tardigrade's definition though.

I'm surprised nobody has mentioned Rapoon yet.
