Attentive Gathering ~ all ears all minds
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.
Participants will engage in listening and sound making exercises guided by the following instructors:
A pioneering electroacoustic composer whose work deals with the acoustic environment and soundscapes of urban or rural areas, including voices, noise, silence, music and media.
A versatile musical maverick, Viviane Houle is a vocalist, improviser and songwriter with a genuine curiosity about the full possibilities of vocal expression.
A member of the Canadian Electroacoustic Community whose work focuses on electroacoustic and electronic compositions.
