Join us for a virtual Deep Listening workshop led by artist Brittney Hofer inspired by LaMont Hamilton’s light and sound installation, To Hear the Earth Before the End of the World.
The practice involves hearing, listening, and moving. Participants will focus on the element of air to explore the differences between the involuntary nature of hearing and the voluntary, selective nature of listening. The practice includes bodywork, sonic meditations, and interactive performances aimed at cultivating a heightened awareness of the sonic environment, at the same time promoting a playful atmosphere.
Inspired by tai chi and chi gong, Deep Listening is a contemplative practice created by Pauline Oliveros, an American composer, accordionist, and a central figure in the development of experimental and electronic music.
