Let me explicate.
With PERCEPTION I basically mean the mindset, taste, perspective, way of judgement and overall perspective a musician approaches the further parameters. Of course this is very individual and there are many „right“ perceptions, but first one has to have an idea where to go. Perception derives mostly from listening carefully to music and observing in order to be able to classify at all. For example what sounds „good“ and „bad“ and why ? The quality of SOUND is the first thing our ear recognizes. It sets up a big frame that is filled with everything else. TIME is often way too much underrated but it is responsible for the whole flow and the „fitting in or not“ and so a part of the big frame as well. PHRASING is the way the content is presented and decorated, it also brings the content to life. For me, the „HOW“ is much more important and has a much bigger impact than the „WHAT“. We often overlook that hierarchy and concentrate a lot on content.
