John Cage: "Through Pauline Oliveros and Deep Listening I finally know what harmony is... It's about the pleasure of making music."

Pauline Oliveros has taken the accordion to an heretofore unknown level with sounds stretched and bent in an expressive network of vibrations spinning in space. Her work is known throughout the world for its unusual power to change minds. She currently teaches at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy NY and at Mills College. In October she will lead a deep listening meditation and perform a duet with Cecil Taylor for the opening of the Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.

Pauline’s Solo

Listening to this space I sound the space. Listening to the energy of all who are present I sound this energy. Listening to my listening and your listening I make this music here and now with the assistance of all that there is.

I dedicate this music to a world that makes peace more exciting than violence.
