For most of us, there is only the unattended

Moment, the moment in and out of time,

The distraction fit, lost in a shaft of sunlight,

The wild thyme unseen, or the winter lightning

Or the waterfall, or music heard so deeply

That it is not heard at all, but you are the music

While the music lasts.


T. S. Eliot




To celebrate World Listening Day, The Eaves brings you a collection of books, stories, and graphic novels that have a special relation to music, listening, and audio culture, from Patti Smith’s M Train, over John Cheever’s ”The Enormous Radio“ to Thomas Mann’s Doktor Faustus.
