Here's a new essay of mine, in which I list some of the different ways of listening I can think of.  It's part of an ongoing exploration of how we listen, and the different ways in which our consciousness is focussed when we do listen.  Along the way, I make reference to a 1998 score by David Dunn "Purposeful Listening in Complex States of Time," which you can also download from the essay page.  As well, I also refer to my 1981 essay "Musical Perception and Exploratory Music," which is also downloadable from the essay page.
