Also known as Lowercase Music, Lowercase Audio, or simply Lowercase, Lowercase Sound is an area of aesthetic and creative activity that can loosely be termed a genre/category. Most who associate themselves with the term, however, value a sense of fluidity in the area's boundaries. Lowercase artists privilege listening as a creative act, and tend towards focussed and attentive listening contexts, frequently to quiet, small, or commonly 'overlooked' sounds. The term is associated with Steve Roden who suggests that the genre "bears a certain sense of quiet and humility; it doesn't demand attention, it must be discovered...It's the opposite of capital letters - loud things which draw attention to themselves."
