Day of Listening ~ May 6, Troy, NY

"Deep Listening, is a way of listening in every possible way to everything possible to hear, no matter what you are doing."
- Pauline Oliveros
Deep Listening, developed by composer Pauline Oliveros, explores the difference between the involuntary nature of hearing and the voluntary, selective nature of listening.
The practice includes bodywork, sonic meditations, interactive performance, listening to the sounds of daily life, nature, one’s own thoughts, imagination and dreams. It cultivates a heightened awareness of the sonic environment, both external and internal, and promotes experimentation, improvisation, collaboration, playfulness and other creative skills vital to personal and community growth.
Workshops will run throughout the day, each will be 30-40 minutes long and range from mindful, relaxing activities, to more improvisatory and playful ones. Drop in any time. Here is the schedule for the day:
