Common Asked Listening Session Questions

What’s is an listening session?

A listening experience is a guided listening session where the audience actively and intentionally listens and engages with the auditory content.

It is more than just hearing; it includes the emotional, intellectual and sensory responses that occur as they immerse themselves in what they listen to. A technique is introduced called natural listening to engage with sound even more. 

The experience can be of different lengths, using different audio devices:
