NPR explores the challenges of processing music in the modern age, by way of a failed experiment.

"For the entirety of 2017, I would listen to just one album a week. I decided to conduct this experiment because I romanticized the days of intimate close listening, of prolonged concentrated meditation with an art object, and I sought to reactivate the ritual function of such encounters."

Thanks for listening!
