Sweet Anticipation(*)

"Listening to Music is not a passive process but intensely active, involving a stream of inferences, hypotheses, expectations, and anticipations (as David Huron and others have explored)."

Oliver Sacks, Musicophilia, 2007, p.211.
(*) Sweet Anticipation is the title of the book by David Huron (MIT Press)
