You cannot paint with out seeing.  I have not painted anything in some 20 years but I can tell you seeing, looking, is as much an art as is the act of put paint on a canvas. Same goes with listening for the composer. 
 


One of the greatest composers of all time was deaf.



There are many blind painters.  A blind man painted this.

Arecibo - Trans Plutonian Transmissions



Dark Ambient Space music with Industrial overtones.  This was a one time side project of Lustmord made many years ago and it still sounds good today.  Not sure what the YouTube sounds like.

Love that album.  There were rumors of a follow-up, but it never materialized.

Do painters practice the art of seeing?  No.  They practice the art of painting.  Art is a clearly defined thing and it doesn't include listening. 

The term art can be used in the figurative sense.  Now, if they called the movie "The Figurative Art of Listening", then I would have no problem with it.

I will listen to the soundtrack of the movie by Christopher Willits who currently has less than a handful of sales at Bandcamp.

Yeah, "art" is not really a well defined thing. When you see the term "art" in a more original sense, as skill or ability (ancient Greek techne), then things make more sense. The art of spear fishing, or of cycling. It is a skill, and can be improved on with practice. Clearly seeing is an important skill to painters, and to poets, and many other fields.

In Germany we say "Die Kunst des Zuhörens" and indeed it is an ability to listen. I think it is also an art.

Many people do not have time and leisure to listen. Many people do not have the inner peace to listen. We live in a very sensitive age, I call it the cosmic age, where art can give us back inner peace and abilities for proper listening. Art makes the difference to real life because there is more than reality. It is beyond definitions to experience this by yourself in this way or another way.

Is reading an art?  Without it there would be no authors. A reader is part of the writers expression as is the listener for music....if you don't press the play button there is only silence. If nobody buys tickets to a certain concert then there is no audience to play for.

The Monolake chatter inspired me to update my collection.  I already have Cinemascope and Interstate and kept about 3/4 of the songs on those albums.   

A Spotify skip around preview of everything he produced in the last 15 years has lead to a wishlist of no complete albums and about 10 singles.

Never understood why anyone would want to listen to partial albums. I guess that means I'm old fashioned.
