About the Programme
In tribute to Pauline Oliveros, who died in November 2016, this programme brings together musicians, artists, theorists, curators and scholars to explore modes of listening, in particular the relation of listening and attunement to perceptions of change and transformation. Alongside her work on Deep Listening, Oliveros’ work pursued the next technology, for example anticipating the internet through forms of telematic and networked performance, or in developing the Expanded Instrument System. These practices of listening with technology as ways of inviting transformation, of facing and renewing the future, appear intertwined in her writing and her music.
The programme is structured in parallel sessions and combines practical workshops, talks, panel discussions, and academic papers together with performances, exhibition visits and screenings, including contributions from IONE, Don Ihde, Leah Bassel, Annie Jamieson (Museum of Science & Media), Aura Satz, Paolo Thorsen-Nagel (documenta14) and filmmaker Daniel Weintraub amongst many others.
