Limited Engagement Series: Deep Listening

January 11 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm
|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 7:30 pm on Monday, repeating until January 25, 2021

“Take a walk at night. Walk so silently that your feet become ears.” These are the poignant and poetic instructions of composer Pauline Oliveros (1932-2016) in one of her numerous “Sonic Meditations,” a body of work which was designed to be experienced (not just “performed”) by groups of people gathered in the spirit of play and compassionate awareness. Pauline and her students believed that attending to their own attention and developing what she named Deep Listening was an uplifting, transformative, and necessary practice. Each Monday for the month of January, we will explore and experience Oliveros’ “Sonic Meditations,” most of which are vocal and improvisatory. ALL voices are radically welcome. ALL sounds are radically welcome. This class is specifically designed for anyone who is having a human experience. (dogs and cats also welcome.) Oliveros left many gifts, the most precious of which are these group exercises which invite us to truly listen to ourselves and each other in a framework where the act of embarking on such a journey is its own nurturance and reward.
