But we are not push-button creatures. One of the first things to get lost is the immediacy of hearing. Rather than face having to make the transition between entirely external machine-accomplished actions, we block the ability to take in information, particularly via the ear.
Or, if we do hear, it is likely to be through a screen of the already heard, a recording of the music we are about to play, for instance.
Listening requires openness to whatever it is. More often than not we are defended against that very quality.
