Cause, Effect, Mind

Consciousness acts as a filter.  It absorbs, and it projects.

The listener's state of mind may be altered by music, or it may alter the perception of music.

These are attitudes accorded to music, and not necessarily expectations related to myriad sounds experienced within settings or atmospheres generally. These latter may be perceived more openly and directly, and, from my vantage point as a composer, are of greatest interest.
