The work is composed from tones generated in the inner ear.  These tones, called spontaneous otoacoustic emissions (or SOAE), are produced – without external stimulation – in the ears of some people. All ‘ear chords’ were recorded, filtered, analyzed, and then interpreted for voices.

sound performance
+ publication of essay by Daniel Muzyczuk  

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.
