PUBLIC WORKSHOPS –
QUANTUM LISTENING with ANNE BOURNE
A monthly sonic meditation and choir practice drawing from accessible and inclusive text scores and the Deep Listening pieces of Pauline Oliveros 1932-2016. Open to all levels of experience. The text scores propose listening strategies and voice toning based on the seven vowels, the breath, and instinct as sources for lively collective improvisation. The listening offers an experience of Taoist Qi Gong, multisensory perception in a more than human sound field, evoking a sonic memory archive, and well being. Note: daytime sessions may include a walk outdoors.
