The chapter follows different cultural manifestations of the Orpheus myth (Sophocles, Marcel Duchamp, Hitchcock, Monteverdi, Mozart, Fritz Lang, Gaston Leroux, Brian De Palma, Alban Berg) in order to trace the theory of listening that it carries within itself. The chapter ends with a deconstructive rereading of Adorno’s theory of “structural listening.”
