In all ecologies, microbes perform vital element-cycling work for our planet. Microbial listening needs to be broad, proliferant and expansive, reflecting this ubiquity and encompassing varying complex entanglements of lifeforms and situations. But microbial existence also necessitates a listening that becomes specific, attuning with sensitivity to the cellular expressions of the imperceptible and the infinitesimal. We begin by opening an encounter between human and other worlds that hinges on deepening our listening, via conviviality and music, meeting in the universes we contain.
