Artists Studio: Pauline Oliveros and Ione

“Oliveros’s compositions will enrich your musical imaginations, but she’ll also expand your ears … and maybe even your soul, too.”
The Guardian (UK)

Pauline Oliveros is an American composer and accordionist who is a central figure in the development of experimental and electronic art music, redefining the boundaries of music making for more than 50 years. She is joined by noted author, director, and dream specialist IONE in the Veterans Room to present a Deep Listening Intensive, exploring the difference between the involuntary nature of hearing and the voluntary, selective nature of listening through movement and sonic, interactive meditations. Conducted in multiple sessions over two days, the experience reengages the listener with the sounds of daily life, nature, imagination, and dreams, to offer a new sonic reality that shows that there is more to listening than meets the ear.

Session 1: Friday, April 1 from 7:00pm—10:00pm (Participants are invited to carry their listening beyond the Veterans Room and into the city that evening through their own dreaming at home.)
Session 2: Saturday, April 2 from 3:00pm—5:00pm
Session 3: Saturday, April 2 at 8:00pm (Sonic Meditation with Pauline Oliveros culminating in a concert with Jason Moran and The Bandwagon)
