I can listen to music for hours at a time. Usually while doing other things too -- driving, cooking, the dishes, eating, reading. Sometimes, though, after hearing something particularly deeply satisfying, I stop and bask and don’t listen to anything else for a while.

Recently came across this lovely quote from Terry Riley in a booklet note to a CD of his music: “[A]s anyone who has experienced the full rush of radiant sound knows, when it ends there is a marvelous aura of un-sounded sound floating in the afterimage, disembodied, carrying the spirit but not the gravity.”
