Deep Listening:
The Story of Pauline Oliveros

We are delighted to watch Deep Listening: The Story of Pauline Oliveros with you in the framework of our collaboration with MaerzMusik. In our own work, Pauline Oliveros was central to develop a practice of what it means to listen adn to untrain our ears. 
The film tells the story of the iconic composer, performer, teacher, philosopher, technological innovator and humanitarian, Pauline Oliveros. She was one of the world's original electronic musicians, the only female amongst notable post-war American composers, a master accordion player, a teacher and mentor to musicians, a gateway to music and sound for non-musicians and a technical innovator who helped develop everything from tools that allow musicians to play together while in different countries to software that enables those with severe disabilities to create beautiful music. On the vanguard of contemporary American music for six decades, her story illuminates the pathway to how we got where we are and where the future will take us in the worlds of music, the philosophy of sound, and the art of listening.
