What’s this strange emotion? Fun? – 2.29.16

There is a palpable difference between an individual experience and a collective one. We have plenty of the first, but so few of the second. We are always drawn to  experiences where everyone in the room has let down their guard long enough to just be part of the crowd for a moment – where the crowd isn’t an incidental fact, but half of the fun. Can you hear the room around you exploding in laughter? Can you feel the charged, time-stopping silence of a shared holy moment? Can you feel the inner, Braveheart-ish roar as everyone – together as one person – surges to their feet to cheer the artists who have just moved them all?

A central goal at The Ear: create collective experiences around new, highbrow music.
