    Default How voracious is your musical appetite?

    Can you absorb music all day, every day without growing tired of it? Or perhaps you limit youself to a few hours a day? What are your listening habits?

    I listen to a wide variety of music and ever since I was a little kid there has been music around me almost constantly. Sometimes feels weird without it being there. I do like select moments of silence like when I'm composing but then I'm listening to music in my head not on the stereo or radio. Or if I'm trying to really think something through I don't nessecarily always like music on but for the most part I listen to music a lot!

    An additional question come to mind for those who listen to music many hours a day: does it ever become a background activity, or are you listening intently to every piece (beginning to end?)

    I don't listen to just classical music, I listen to a wide variety. If it's classical music I'm listening to I usually can't help but listen intently and try to analyze it but with other, more secular music or rhythm stuff (Herbie Hancock, Oscar Peterson, Beatles etc) I either sing along or "groove out" to it.

    I could have some music going 24 hours a day, except an occasional time of complete silence, for reflection.

    I try have music around me all the time (bless my ipod). Lots of different styles and genres, it depends on the mood I'm in at the time.

    I agree - I could listen all day! I love lots of different types of music, but I listen to one "type" for most of a day, depending on what mood I'm in!

    Yup - hurray for the IPod.

    I listen to music only when I have enough focus to concentrate on it. I don't like having music in the background, either I devote most of my attention to it or I have silence.

    Others grow tired of my musical tastes, so I listen mostly when I'm alone. Otherwise I would listen 24/7.

    Usually 4-8 hours a day, but a mix of styles (classical, rock, jazz). Fortunately, my wife and I have a taste that is not that different (and if required, there is always the headphones set).

    Mostly my fault, Ravndal: a little ballet of revenants to spice things up.

    I have an insatiable musical appetite. If I'm not playing, I'm listening haha.
