What should I be listening for? The emotion behind the words? An accuracy of pitch? Tight execution of the song? Artistic overview? Should I be watching for a generosity towards the audience? A centered presence on stage? In short, am I looking for kinship or for some inner aesthetic pleasure when I listen to a band or watch some performance? Perhaps this is the question for all of my day: what do I recognize, what do I seek, what do I find?
