Pauline Oliveros

Internationally acclaimed composer, performer, humanitarian, and pioneer, Pauline Oliveros has forged new ground, written books, formulated new music theories and investigated new ways to focus attention on music including her concepts of “Deep Listening” and “sonic awareness.” Her career spans fifty years of boundary-dissolving music making. She has been vocal about representing the needs of individual artists, the need for diversity and experimentation in the arts, and promoting cooperation and good will among people.
