Music: Tears in the Rain

Technology shapes and inspires art. Bjork has talked about how listening to music on her computer influenced the album Medulla. She mentioned that little sounds become big when listening with headphones.

Over the past couple of years I have probably spent as much or more time listening to music on my iPod than on my stereo system. I think Tears in the Rain has a lot to do with that. I find that listening with headphones makes the music more intimate. One enters the space of the music, rather than having the music transformed by one’s own space. Listening with headphones the mind easily slips into the architecture of the sound rather than experiencing the sound of the music shaped by the architecture of the listening room.
