Pauline Oliveros - Text Scores

  • Church of the Annunciation 259 N 5th St at Havemeyer and Metropolitan Brooklyn, NY 11211 (map)

Music for Contemplation concludes its spring season Saturday May 2nd with an evening of carefully crafted interpretations of Pauline Oliveros’ text scores. Growing out of her practice of Deep Listening™, each piece is a set of simple directions designed to encourage attentive listening and communication between musicians. The program will be performed by Damon Loren Baker (instruments), Jen Baker (trombone), Shelley Burgon (harp), Loren Dempster (cello), Dan Joseph (hammer dulcimer) and Craig Shepard (trombone) and will feature a mix of solo end ensemble works from her recently published Anthology of Text Scores (Deep Listening Publications, 2013)  including From Unknown Silences (1996), Wind Horse (1990), and In Consideration of the Earth (1998).
