Musical Practice as a Form of Life

How Making Music Can be Meaningful and Real

Is musical practice ›real‹ – and how is it connected with everyday life? Eva-Maria Houben shows that making music changes as soon as its meaning is not sought in a purpose-oriented production of results, but in performing music as an activity – indeed, as play. Musical practice, Eva-Maria Houben contends, should be understood as open and never finished. Such an emphasis on repetition can free us from perfection, productivity, and purpose, allowing meaning to unfold in specific situations, places, and relationships. Thus understood, musical practice can become a form of life and a reality in its own right.
