“If speaking is silver, then listening is gold.”

-Turkish Proverb

Is listening a lost art?

Sensory bombardment sometimes obscures

a quality listening experience.

This is on my mind while visiting three music exhibits at the Morris Museum in Morristown, New Jersey. Particularly striking is the audio installation by John Morton, incorporating vocal sounds of the human ecstatic experience from many lands.
