What is Deep Listening?
Deep Listening® is a philosophy and practice developed by Pauline Oliveros that distinguishes the difference between the involuntary nature of hearing and the voluntary selective nature of listening. The result of the practice cultivates appreciation of sounds on a heightened level, expanding the potential for connection and interaction with one’s environment, technology and performance with others in music and related arts.
The practice of Deep Listening provides a framework for artistic collaboration and musical improvisation and gives composers, performers, artists of other disciplines, and audiences new tools to explore and interact with environmental and instrumental sounds.
The Deep Listening Institute fosters creativity in artists of all ages and levels of artistic development by holding workshops, retreats, summer camps and after school programs; performing and publishing new work; and developing new performance technologies.
Deep Listening Institute presents
The Deep Listening Convergence Concert Series
June 8th, 9th and 10th in the Hudson Valley, NY, USA
Forty five musicians representing 11 countries are coming together at the Lifebridge Sanctuary in High Falls NY after a five month virtual residency online to perform three New York State concerts:
8PM June 8th @ the Sanctuary for Independent Media, Troy, NY
8PM June 9th @ Time Space Ltd., Hudson, NY
3PM June 10th @ the LifeBridge Sanctuary, High Falls, NY
Originally proposed by Vonn New with the assistance of technical director Scot Gresham-Lancaster, the three concerts are the proof of concept. Via the internet using Skype, musicians form new ensembles, improvise, plan and rehearse in audio conferences up to ten players at a time. The concerts will feature various world premieres and a wide array of compositions including Pauline Oliveros’ famous Worldwide Tuning Meditation.
The Deep Listening Convergence Concert Series will be broadcast live on the internet here:
