    Abstract:
    This chapter presents an approach to musical listening and analysis that privileges the individual perspectives of performers in a rock ensemble. Using passages from Yes's "And You And I," this study examines how each musician hears the texture in different ways while each of these "positions" differs from the Ideal Listening Position, which is the one normally assumed to be that of the listener outside of the performing ensemble.
