A trained ear is a blessing, but it doesn’t come without experience. Because the ear is one of the most delicate human organs it requires serious effort in order to be able to distinguish between sounds; good and bad, sort by sort.

In the video above, birdwatcher Wil and up-and-coming Amsterdam-based techno DJ Titia discuss the art of listening from their own perspectives. They take each other out on a field trip - an actual field and the techno club - to teach each other about their audial expertise. The beauty of the video is that everybody can learn from their lessons, whether you’re into techno or birdwatching/-listening.
