More Information about the Event

Daniel Weintraub’s new feature-length film, “Deep Listening: The Story of Pauline Oliveros“, is a documentary that traces the life and work of visionary composer, musician, teacher, technological innovator, and humanitarian Pauline Oliveros (1932–2016).

Pauline was one of the world’s original electronic musicians, the only woman amongst notable post-war American composers, a master accordion player, a teacher and mentor to musicians, a gateway to music and sound for non-musicians, and a technical innovator who helped develop everything from tools that allow musicians to play together while in different countries, to software that enables those with severe disabilities to create beautiful music.

Produced in collaboration with executive producer IONE, Oliveros’ partner in life and work, and the Ministry of Maåt, Inc., the film combines rare archival footage, live performances, and unreleased music with appearances by Terry Riley, Anna Halprin, Ione, Linda Montano, Laurie Anderson, Thurston Moore, Alvin Lucier, Claire Chase, Miya Masaoka, Morton Subotnick, Tony Martin, Ramon Sender, and many more ground-breaking artists.

Please find a preview on the festival event webpage.

ImprovLab is a physically accessible venue. The Q&A portion of this event will feature live transcription and ASL interpretation. For details on the festival’s accessibility, please visit our general accessibility page.
