T18 - "HERE COMES THE SUN"—ARE YOU LISTENING?
William Moylan, University of Massachusetts Lowell - Lowell, MA, USA
Arguably the most important skill in audio work, listening is perhaps the most difficult to understand and master. Hearing requires learning what to listen for (the dimensions of live and reproduced sound), then developing skill in the process of listening (the technique of discovering, experiencing and understanding these many dimensions and details of sound). Listening in audio often requires almost simultaneous attention to a multitude of levels of perspective, critical and analytical listening information, and more. Through listening and analysis of “Here Comes the Sun” and other Beatles productions, this tutorial
illustrates key ways to enhance your listening skills and to learn from those who create the albums we love.
