Oliveros is an internationally renowned composer and performer. Over her fifty-year career, she has profoundly influenced contemporary music through her innovative work with improvisation, electronic music, meditation, myth and ritual. She is founder and president of the Deep Listening Institute, Ltd., and Professor of Music at the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, NY.

Ione is a critically acclaimed author, playwright, poet, educator, and performer-improviser. She is Director of the Ministry of Maåt, Inc., and Artistic Director of the Deep Listening Institute.
