Do we listen 2 music?
Or do we listen 2 Music?
Music as a lifestyle, Music as a culture
Music as a sense of identity, as it pertains to

How we present ourselves in a society
I am a punk – I listen to Music
I am a hip-hop – I listen to Music
I listen to Music

You aren’t really listening
to music. To an arrangement – of notes and chords
of beats or bass or
something created in a studio. Or something slapped

together in a garage, ,
or constructed carefully
on an acoustic at a party, then fundamentally failing to
get laid.
