suddenlyLISTEN celebrates 10 years with Pauline Oliveros 

The veteran composer, philosopher and performer brings her experimental music back to Halifax.

It was five years ago when Norman Adams and suddenlyLISTEN first brought Pauline Oliveros to Halifax for the first time and at the time, he says, "It seemed like a dream." No wonder. The composer, performer, philosopher and author has 60 years experience making music, exploring sound and honing her concept of Deep Listening, a meditative practice based on the concept that, "Everyone can hear, but listening is a conscious activity," says Adams. To celebrate suddenyLISTEN's 10th year, Oliveros is back with her accordion, Ione, a spoken word artist known for her improvisation, and Adams, who says bringing Oliveros back was a "no-brainer". "I think that this music creates an atmosphere more so than other improvised music, it's quite a magical atmosphere. It really creates this immersive environment that's a really pleasant place to be." Oliveros will also be teaching a workshop on Deep Listening on Saturday May 21 from 2 to 5pm.

Fri May 20, St. Matthews United Church, 1479 Barrington Street, 8pm, $20/$10
