1. A video in which the Kronos quartet explains how its members communicate with one another in performance.

“The way you play your note is deeply affected by the way the person right before you plays their note.”

“What I should really be practicing in anything I do is…flexibility.”

2. A passage from Sean Wilsey’s More Curious that evokes the essence of performing music:

“Skating is a feeling. If you really want to get it, you have to do it” (92).

3. A concert review that illustrates the difference between a music’s intentions and the reality of its sounding.

“It’s important to remember that music has both aesthetic value and use value, though at live performances, it’s generally the first of those things that gets priority.”
