Quantum Listening Event: Pauline Oliveros at 90
This event is hosted by Ignota and Gray Area.
Join IONE, Laurie Anderson, Morton Subotnick, Aura Satz, members of the San Francisco Tape Music Center and Center for Contemporary Music and many more to celebrate Pauline Oliveros’ life and work. IONE will lead a Sonic Meditation which will be followed by reflections and remembrances from friends of Pauline.
In response to the anti-war movements of the 1960s, pioneering musician and composer Pauline Oliveros began to expand the way she made music, experimenting with meditation, movement and activism in her compositions. Fascinated by the role that sound and consciousness play in our daily lives, Oliveros developed a series of Sonic Meditations that would eventually lead to the creation of Deep Listening. In Quantum Listening, Oliveros shows how Deep Listening is the foundation for a radically transformed social matrix: one in which compassion and peace form the basis for our actions in the world.
