Unlike any other time in human history we are bombarded by music virtually everywhere we go. We hear so much music that sometimes we are only hearing and not listening. Music educators have coined the term audio thrombosis to explain the phenomenon. We hear, yet we can become disconnected from what we are hearing. It’s rather like driving down the freeway and missing your stop–only realizing miles later that you were hypnotized by the lines of the interstate and the sounds of the cars whizzing by you. Once, while driving on the 405 in Los Angeles, I was headed for the San Fernando Valley but ended up in Ventura.
