What is the difference between hearing and listening? Does sound have consciousness? Can you imagine listening beyond the edge of your own imagination?
Join IONE and members of the San Francisco Tape Music Center and Center for Contemporary Music to celebrate Pauline Oliveros' life and work on what would have been her 90th birthday, hosted by Gray Area and Ignota.
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 – a practice for healing and transformation open to all, rooted in her musicianship.
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. Quantum Listening is newly published by Ignota bringing Oliveros’ futuristic vision, blending technology and spirituality, together with a new Foreword and Introduction by Laurie Anderson and IONE
