An archaeology of “overhearing”: starting with an etymological investigation of the French word “ecoute,” the chapter explores different historical (Jeremy Bentham’s “panacousticon”), philosophical (Nietzsche, Barthes, Foucault, Deleuze), musical (Mozart, Furtwangler), cinematic (Coppola), and literary (Shakespeare, Joyce) figures for overhearing. It defines “overhearing” as a form of reduplication and splitting up of listening (diaphonia).

Keywords:   control, diaphony, overhearing, panacousticon, rhythm
