“As a performing musician, I have always felt the energy and force of music throughout my being. I feel the vibrations of music in my body when I am listening to it, dancing to it, or performing it. I am even moved when I imagine music in my mind. I am also deeply curious about how we learn to listen internally to ourselves and to each other in discourse. I believe we can learn how to listen deeply from the examples provided through music. Therefore, this in-depth paper focuses on three aspects of music from a somatic perspective: the physiology of music, entrainment, and resonance. In the second part of the paper, I examine a communication and change theory called Theory U (Scharmer, 2007b) and connect the theory’s concept of
generative listening to these three somatic aspects of music.”
