Self-organized systems emphasize Gibson's (1966) proposal that organisms and the environment are one coupled system. As a result, energy flow throughout the system allows its subsystems to utilize it in a meaningful way. Specifically, emergent collective organization provides information about and specific to the world around us. During music performance, this is especially important for both performers and listeners alike. This theoretical proposal discusses how we can consider examining ecological physics and the theory of the global array through music performance. If we consider a group of singers as a self-organized system, it opens the door to understanding the dynamics and information flow within and around it. The goal of this paper is to explore an unorthodox approach to examining the perception of music performance.
