This interview with Bill Drummond often pops into my mind. I like the strategies he tries out to deal with the musical abundance we live with these days, such as spending a year only listening to music beginning with B. I find that unless I trick myself into paying attention to music that I either just revert to tried and trusted favourites or let all sorts of new stuff drift by me an in ambient haze. Not really listening.
So I thought I'd try a 26 week experiment; listening to a new letter every week. Just to see what I notice. This is week A.
Projects for paying attention to attention. Those seem interesting now.
