Admission: Free to Western Front Members
Attentive Gathering ~ all ears all minds
Participants will engage in listening and sound making exercises guided by Viviane Houle.
Deep Listening®, originated by Pauline Oliveros is a form of meditation based on experiencing heightened awareness of sound, silence and sounding.
Deep Listening® is a philosophy and practice 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.
Viviane Houle is a vocalist, improvisor and songwriter who defies categorization. Celebrated for her audacious approach to music and her tour de force improvisations, Viviane has collaborated with some of Canada’s finest improvisers, dancers, filmmakers and theatre artists. Her recordings include a CD of original songs and improvisations with Existential Angst Party, la belle et la bête with Stefan Smulovitz, and Treize, featuring 13 extraordinary duos.
