Pauline Oliveros

“What’s delicious is when those beats start, it’s really beautiful. We’ll at least it is for me, I like it a lot.”

Pauline Oliveros was, for me, one of the greatest composers of the 20th century. Her sonic meditations and thoughts on deep listening are central to my understanding of the way sounds, images and people relate. She unfortunately died in 2016, but left a legacy of music that was all about “community, the social power of sound, an extended recognition of its sources, and its deconstruction of hierarchy.”

Not only that but I think she was a deeply inspirational character as well.

Our workshops will usually start with one of her sonic meditations as they are a brilliant way to tune with each other, to listen and sound together.
