    On Listening
    The way we have learned to listen is here put to a difficult test. Blom’s scalpel becomes visible with almost excessive clarity in the cuts it leaves in our listening. One does not need to know Grieg in order to experience the way his music – as a historically sedimented collective state of listening – encounters the present time of the composer Blom. The way it is reflected: a multiply refracted image of our listening and of music is cast back at us. I have learned to listen through my environment, through the tradition that has shaped me. From this state of listening, which was shaped in a particular way by Grieg (and, far more than this, which also shaped him and is passed on through his music), we hear Blom’s as a processing of our state of listening.
    This music by Blom works on our perception, which is the real function of music as art.
