DEEP LISTENING NIGHT
October 27th, Monument-National, 8 PM
« THE INTIMACY OF HER ELECTRONIC COMPOSITIONS SUGGESTS PARALLELS WITH JOHN CAGE'S STATEMENTS ABOUT SILENCE »
— The Wire (UK)
AKOUSMA begins with a mythical figure of the American electronic music scene. For several years now, Pauline Oliveros has been promoting Deep Listening, a behaviour based on active listening, and Réseaux and AKOUSMA have been promoting this very form of active listening too. Better known for her improvisations on the accordion, she will be presenting a program of her best tape music works.
« THE NOISES AND CORROSION ARE LIKE THE BARNACLES, RUST AND SEAWEED ACQUIRED BY A SHIP OVER YEARS OF OCEAN-GOING »
