Matos may be on to something--The Slow Listening Movement. He's sort of de-professional neccessitizing his listening habits ("must stay ont top of it all
"), returning to the pace of analog consumption. The sense of endless options that is the supposed appeal of digital/ internet music consumption really lends itself to hording rather than exploration. Treating music with time is a wonderfully retrogressive idea for 09, life and art-affirming and also, reasonable--takes the tyranny of choice out of it, with a plodding sort of method. I don't think I could wing this exact method, but conceptually, I am game to adopt something similar. I think we should all think about it, put it in the hopper for PACT adaptation 2009, coming down the pike this week.
