Tools of the Trade 2 : “Listening for Intimacy: A Queer, Community Reading of Oliveros’ Sonic Meditations”

Sunday, June 4, 2017
DOORS: 1:00pm
La Vitrola


Pauline Oliveros' Sonic Meditations offer a cunningly simple invitation to a world beyond the heterosexist conventions of Western musicality. Musical training and even music itself are, for Oliveros, always secondary to the development of a queer sort of intimacy with the sonic environment, one's fellow listeners and one's own body, an intimacy that she came to call Deep Listening. In keeping with the manner in which the Sonic Meditations were first "rehearsed" and in an effort to make space for new kinds of closeness, this workshop will be conducted largely non-verbally. Instruments are welcome, but most of the meditations focus on vocal sound-making. The selected Meditations will be followed by a group discussion on intimacy, listening and learning across the LGBTQ+ community. Moderated by Justin Jones.
