Zen of Critical Listening: What is the true goal of technical ear training?
Critical listening is essential for sound recording, mixing, and mastering to obtain high-quality sound. A systematic training curriculum for critical listening can help trainees become expert listeners in a reduced amount of time relative to similar experiences gained in a job setting. The workshop aims to discuss the opinions of educators regarding the necessary features and methods for efficient ear training and to share their in-depth expertise. Furthermore, the workshop aims to share the micro and macro points of view of ear training: training methods, sound samples used, acquired skills by trainees, and social impacts on the audio and electro-acoustic R&D industry.
