It is a performance in the genre of “body music,” which consists of four pieces. Each piece explores a different way of non-hearing or some other conceptual, if not esoteric way of hearing. The choir performing them wears soundproof headphones. In “Listening Stock”, the performers come to metaphysical listening and attunement through a temporary pseudo-deafness.
