    It's what I haphazardly remember from a recent reading of William Benzon's book _Beethoven's Anvil_. He has a pertinent definition of "Ensemble State Collapse" on page 61 of the hardcopy where those engaged in what he calls "musicking" or musical activity have their neural states as a whole collapse into one sort of like a single person. I think he would be the one to ask for explication, because I'll probably botch it up pretty badly. There's some loose ends I need to tie up between some of his concepts (like the persona concept I just had an exchange with him over) before I can
    "get a grip" so to speak.
