Listening Marathon - Al Margolis

Saturday, April 12, 2014 - 1:00pm
Uptown Gallery, 296 Wall St, Kingston NY
Three Hour Listening Marathon of Al Margolis’ latest release Thirty, a three CD set (inyrdisk.com).

Released 01/01/2014 to commemorate 30 years of If, Bwana, this triple disk gracefully spans 3 and 1/4 hours of riveting musique concrete and refined experimentation from a founding figure in modern American underground composition and sound study, Al Margolis. These most recent recordings come to you remastered and repackaged from the self-released tapes sold in a nearly invisible edition during a brief tour last year, sub-titled within Thirty as Blue Two, Green Three and Yellow Four. Thirty captures If, Bwana championing familiar territory with haunting long-form drone compositions such as "Organ Life(less)", "Massed Roses" and "Forks, Waves, Bees" and forging ahead with new sonic focus into the infinite worlds found within bassoons and voices. Contemporary work at its deepest and a must for any If, Bwana fan, this first edition gatefold package features sturdily pasted-on art over disk envelopes and an insert, while future editions may be alternatively designed.

A recent review of Margolis's work says: "Let it be declared that Al Margolis/If, Bwana is some sort of evil genius working with raw materials which are never adapted to a genre or a context, because they create one in that very moment. Those sources are radically altered up to an utterly unrecognizable state, anarchic manifestations moving in compact determination." (Massimo Ricci, Touching Extremes).

2. RECORD AND POST YOUR PERFORMANCES OF OLIVEROS’ SCORES.
Deep Listening Institute and Deep Listening Publications extend an open invitation to musicians, non-musicians and deep listeners to share their own past or new performances of Pauline Oliveros’ text scores, in particular, ones from the new anthology.

ABOUT THE BOOK
Pauline Oliveros has composed more than 100 text score pieces over four decades of creative work. Now, those pieces have been collected in one comprehensive volume, ANTHOLOGY OF TEXT SCORES, and include individual and group meditations, as well as solo and ensemble performance pieces.

The collection provides invaluable resources for performing musicians, music students and anyone interested in the life work of one of the most unique voices in modern music. ANTHOLOGY OF TEXT SCORES features an introduction by Brian Pertl, Dean of Lawrence Conservatory of Music in Appleton, Wisconsin, and a book blurb by flutist Claire Chase, founder of the International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE) and a MacArthur Fellow.

“I am very excited to have so many of my pieces in this collection readily available for performance,” says the composer Pauline Oliveros. “I am even more excited by the musicians who are performing the pieces."

Claire Chase wrote: “It is difficult to imagine a more quietly—indeed often silently—influential artist, thinker and Renaissance woman of our time than Pauline Oliveros, whose visionary and courageous work has transformed contemporary music…This book is a gift to all of us. It is a luminous invitation to everyone everywhere—adults, children, aficionados, novices, artists, audiences—to begin to hear the world as music.”

ABOUT
Pauline Oliveros
(b. 1932) has influenced American music extensively in her career spanning more than 60 years as a composer, performer, author and philosopher. In 2012, Oliveros received the John Cage Award for 2012 from the Foundation of Contemporary Arts. She pioneered the concept of Deep Listening, a practice based upon principles of improvisation, electronic music, ritual, teaching and meditation. Deep Listening is designed to inspire both trained and untrained musicians to practice the art of listening and responding to environmental conditions in solo and ensemble situations. Read her entire biography: paulineoliveros.us

Deep Listening Institute (DLI) promotes the music and Deep Listening practice of pioneer composer Pauline Oliveros, providing a unique approach to music, literature, art, meditation, technology and healing.  It fosters creative innovation across boundaries and across abilities, among artists and audience, musicians and non-musicians, healers and the physically or cognitively challenged, and children of all ages. DLI supports and is supported by a worldwide network of musicians, artists, scientists and certified Deep Listening practitioners, an ever-growing community of Deep Listeners who strive for a heightened consciousness of the world of sound and the sound of the world.

Friday, July 12, 2013 (All day) - Sunday, July 14, 2013 (All day)
Troy, NY
Deep Listening: Art/Science: the first international conference on Deep Listening  

Deep Listening has been developed by Pauline Oliveros over the past 40 years as a way to enhance attention, listening and creativity for all. To this end it draws upon a wide variety of embodied practices as well as theories of cognitive science, and has been applied to a variety of fields. This includes pedagogy across all levels of education, creative arts therapy, the realization of new creative works, developing new performance paradigms across abilities and the pairing with new technologies to advance all of these fronts and more. The conference Deep Listening: Art/Science invites practitioners and scholars to consider the experience of this practice and its use in creation, communication and education.

Under the Radar Concert with Al Margolis and James Ilgenfritz

Saturday, November 5, 2011 - 8:00pm
$10/$8
Deep Listening Space @ The Shirt Factory

String Surprise featuring musical duo Al Margolis and James Ilgenfritz.

Al Margolis has been an activist in the 1980s American cassette underground through his cassette label Sound of Pig Music; was co-founder of experimental music label Pogus Productions, which he continues to run and also currently runs Deep Listening Institute’s label Deep Listening Publications. Active under the name If, Bwana since 1984, making music that has swung between fairly spontaneous studio constructions and more process-oriented composition.

"Let it be declared that Al Margolis/If, Bwana is some sort of evil genius working with raw materials which are never adapted to a genre or a context, because they create one in that very moment. Those sources are radically altered up to an utterly unrecognizable state, anarchic manifestations moving in compact determination." (Massimo Ricci, Touching Extremes).

James Ilgenfritz approaches the double bass as an archeologist, examining rarified aspects of the instrument’s sonic palette to confound the status quo. His work has been praised in Time Out New York, Signal To Noise, All About Jazz –New York, and Downbeat Magazine. A tireless musical traveler, James has taken part in recent performances including work with Anthony Braxton, Pauline Oliveros, George Lewis, Elliott Sharp, John Zorn, Lukas Ligeti, Gary Lucas, Steve Swell, and Denman Maroney. He is a member of Billy Fox’s Blackbirds and Bullets, Eric Eigner’s Mysterium Project, Gordon Beeferman’s Imaginary Band, Chris Botta/Joe Branciforte’s The Cellar And Point, and Ted Hearne’s The Delusion Story.

Art on the Wall Virtual Gallery - Caren Canier: Journey in Egypt

Saturday, November 5, 2011 - 5:00pm - 7:00pm
Deep Listening Space @ The Shirt Factory
Opening Reception for Art on the Wall Virtual Gallery Series featuring Caren Canier's Journey in Egypt.

Ancient Egyptian artifacts and their ambiguous relationship to contemporary Islamic culture has been the subject of my most recent work. The emergence of the “Arab Spring” shortly after my visit further heightened my awareness of the strange marriage of cultures and visual vocabularies in Egypt, making me acutely aware of the intertwining of civilizations through time and space. The expression “history repeats itself” has taken on a more profound meaning as I observe the artifacts of worship, conflicts and conquests that occurred so many centuries ago.

On view throughout months of November and December.  Part of Ione's 16th Annual Dream Festival.

Pauline Oliveros featured with The Kitchen's Pioneers of the Downtown Sound

Friday, September 9, 2011 - 8:00pm
The Kitchen, 512 West 19th St, NYC
On the occasion of The Kitchen’s 40th Anniversary, legendary experimental musician and composer Rhys Chatham curates a shared program of music from his time as a performer and music curator at The Kitchen during the 1970s. Avant-garde luminaries Tony Conrad, Pauline Oliveros, Joan La Barbara,and Laurie Spiegel will return to The Kitchen’s stage and perform the now canonical experimental music pieces they debuted at The Kitchen in the 1970s, an incredibly fertile and experimental period in New York when these pioneering artists helped create the original “downtown sound.”

Pauline Oliveros will perform Sounding Awake, a multi-virtual-instrumental, and an improvisation using a Roland V Accordion. La Barbara will perform Circular Song (1975), which is inspired by circular breathing, and Twelvesong (1977), her first multi-track “sound painting.”  Additionally, she will perform Solitary Journey (2011), which is a structured improvisation based on extending and expanding her signature techniques (multiphonics, ululation, etc) and utilizing her personal real-time compositional methods.

David Whalen - "Setting Down the Pen and Brush - Breath Empowered Art - Digital Paintings using Breath and Head Motions''

Saturday, July 2, 2011 - 5:00pm - 7:00pm
Deep Listening Space @ The Shirt Factory
Opening Reception for David Whalen.  Part of the Art on the Wall Virtual Gallery Series.

Deep Listening Institute will be hosting an opening reception for their series, Art on the Wall Virtual Gallery.  Since the fall of 2010, Deep
Listening Institute Artistic Director, Ione, has curated a virtual gallery series that features an artist's work on the Deep Listening Institute website, www.deeplistening.  Every first Saturday, the Kingston community is welcome to come to Deep Listening Space at the Shirt Factory in Midtown Kingston to experience the virtual gallery projected on the wall.  This July and August, Deep Listening Institute is proud to present the work of David Whalen. 


David Whalen is an artist with quadriplegia from Glenville, NY who creates digital art using his breath and head movements.  The art is created using Artrage software with a breath-driven joystick called Jamboxx.  The artist states that this medium has "become very useful in exploring the non-traditional digital art medium which provides so many different accessible features for persons with disabilities to explore as well as a new hands free harmonica styled midi harmonica."

Software such as Artrage provides a number of capabilities for people with disabilities to explore the visual arts. These capabilities include introducing techniques such as changing scale, rotation, shading, layering, independent setup and dozens of other readily available program features that reduce fatigue and allow for full participation in the world of visual arts despite limited movement. Use of breath and head movement provide an alternative for the pen and the hand.  For more information about Jamboxx technology, visit
jamboxx.com

The Deep Listening Institute is located at the Shirt Factory at 77 Cornell St, Suite 303 in midtown Kingston, across the street from the main post office.

Deep Listening Intensive with Pauline Oliveros

Monday, June 6, 2011 - 4:00pm - Friday, June 10, 2011 - 4:00pm
Ratna Ling Retreat Center in Sonoma County, CA

Join us for a Deep Listening Intensive in the meditative and richly nourishing atmosphere of Ratna Ling, a retreat center established by Tarthang Tulku. Through Deep Listening exercises, musicians of all levels of ability and all styles will explore core concepts of improvisation. Individuals without musical training but an interest in the art of listening are also invited to participate.

We will work in an open exploratory circle. There will be opportunities to work alone, in pairs, trios and in larger groups, drawing on the richly innovative Deep Listening practices. There will be improvisations with and without instruments.  Our work will also be informed by the optional morning practice of Kum Nye, a Tibetan yoga adapted for the West by Tarthang Tulku, and by exercises based on his Time, Space and Knowledge (TSK) teachings. The concepts found in these teachings will guide some of our improvisations. 


Benefits of Deep Listening practice include expanded awareness of time and space, relaxation that supports musical activity, an expanding sense of humor, dissolution of old limits, and opening to new patterns. Participants are invited to bring musical instruments, but this is optional.

Art on the Wall Virtual Gallery presents

“Flights” by Suiren, copyright 2011  -   sumi, china paint on paper
Directly working with sumi, china paint on paper, the process is like flying--soaring and rising within a completely open and free space inside one’s mind and heart.
Inspired by music from Paul Kikuchi’s Flightpatterns CD, the paintings are rendered in the moment in a totally unrestricted way, tapping deep into the unconscious to express the un-expressible.  Exhilarating and transforming, the process reveals with complete honesty one’s innermost truth.

 

Performances for the evening will include a reading/performance of Nile Night by Ione, vocal underscoring by Lisa Kelley, a reading with Rachel Koenig and solo performances by Jaclyn Heyen and Lisa Kelley.  Food art for the reception created by Ellie Markovitch.

Deep Listening Institute presents the first open house for its project Adaptive Use Musical Instruments (AUMI).  AUMI is a software interface that was developed specifically to enable people who have very little voluntary mobility to create and perform electronic musical sounds in order to participate in solo and ensemble improvisation.  This two-hour open house will discuss the uses of AUMI in home, educational and therapeutic settings, as well as demonstrate an open drum circle collaboration using percussion instruments and the AUMI software interface .  

This open house initiates a series of three workshops in the Hudson Valley area to educate teachers, therapists, aides and parents in how to use AUMI with improvisation and drumming. The AUMI interface in use At Abilities First, Inc. School since 2007 will be introduced by DLI executive director Pauline Oliveros.  DLI AUMI Technical Assistant Jaclyn Heyen and Abilities First, Inc. Occupational Therapist/musician Leaf Miller will demonstrate how to use AUMI.  After the demos the public will be invited to participate in the music making.  AUMI is free to download from
www.deeplistening.org/adaptiveuse and is intended to  facilitate and empower musical expression for students with disabilities.  

We are also proud to announce Deep Listening Institute has received $15000 from over 200 contributions through United States Artists, a nationwide grant-making, arts advocacy organization whose mission is to invest in America's finest artists and illuminate the value of artist to society, for Improvisation Across
Abilities.  The project was initiated for funding on the USA ARTISTS web site in December 2010 and
was fully funded there by February 26 2011.

Under the Radar Concert with Mia Zabelka - EVENT CHANGE - SEE BELOW

Tuesday, January 25, 2011 - 8:00pm
$10 Adults/$8 Students & Seniors
Deep Listening Space, 77 Cornell St, Suite 303, Kingston NY
DUE TO ILLNESS, THE CONCERT WITH MIA ZABELKA HAS BEEN CHANGED.  THIS CONCERT WILL FEATURE PAULINE OLIVEROS IN A SPECIAL, SOLO CONCERT.  ALL OTHER INFORMATION ABOUT THE CONCERT REMAINS THE SAME.  THANK YOU.

 

Mia Zabelka is a composer, electric violinist and vocalist visiting the Hudson Valley from Vienna, with czech, jewish and french familiar background, lives in the Austrian region of southern Styria.

"M", Mia Zabelka's new solo project, focuses on the development of experimental improvisational techniques with the voice and violin, a process she calls "automatic playing". She explores the relationships between the body, gesture, sound, machines and space using also live electronics to expand the electro-acoustic sonic spectrum. She creates musical imageries in an ongoing process of experimentation and physical immediacy resulting in a melodic complexity and simultaneous transparency characteristic of her sound language.

Amongst Jon Rose and Malcolm Goldstein, Mia Zabelka has the international reputation of one of the most innovative freestyle Violin Players of the World. As a composer and performer of improvised, experimental and electro-acoustic music she has developed a unique language based on the de- and reconstruction of the violin’s sonic possibilities, expanding the instrument using live electronic effects and innovative performance techniques.

She studied music and composition with Roman Haubenstock-Ramati, Dieter Kaufmann, Kurt Schwertsik and Alexander Arenkov in Vienna, creating a foundation on the basis of which she continues to construct and explore the limits of sound and music in a language entirely her own. The violin, voice and her own body transform into sound bodies which are at once organic and primal, screaming, lyrical, composed and explosive.

As a pioneer of electro-acoustic performance and composition in
Austria, Mia Zabelka developed the process she describes as automatic playing, continuously exploring sound and music as physical phenomena, always pushing back the boundaries in radical and provocative performances and compositions that question established notions and given structures. Her work has been described as "A dark delirium of sounds, a disintegrated vision on a complex world – an acoustic version of William Blake's poetry".

She has given concerts and performances throughout
Europe, America and the former USSR. Recipient of numerous prizes and awards, she was a guest of the DAAD's (German Academic Exchange Service's) international artists' programme in Berlin and the Fulbright Commission in New York.

Off Campus Event: Town Hall, 1119 8th Avenue
The composer collective Deep Listening Band—Seattle trombonist Stuart Dempster, keyboardist David Gamper, and accordionist Pauline Oliveros—elevates improvisational music with a passion (and reputation) for site-specific pieces that respond to the unique tone and resonance of physical spaces. Celebrating more than 20 years together, the acclaimed group has honed its experimental voice in a 2-million-gallon cistern, an old limestone quarry, and a lava cave.

Now, after a week-long residency absorbing Town Hall's unique aural qualities, DLB presents a surround-sound concert featuring the premiere of “Great Howl” and “Town Haul,” enhanced by the Expanded Instrument System tonal "time machine" and state-of-the-art sound from the University of Washington's Center for Digital Arts and Experimental Media. Presented by UW School of Music, the UW Center for Digital Arts and Experimental Media, and Town Hall.

Opening Reception for Shadow-walks with Viv Corringham

Saturday, December 4, 2010 - 5:00pm - 8:00pm
Deep Listening Space, 77 Cornell St, Suite 303, Kingston NY. Virtual Gallery on view thoroughout December
With concert at 7-730 pm

Shadow-walks
is an ongoing project, which involves three main elements: walking with others, listening to environmental sound, and improvised singing. It grew out of an interest in our sense of place and our relationship with places, especially very familiar ones. When we walk through a particular area frequently, I wonder how that affects our psyche, and how we affect the place. James Joyce wrote that places remember events, and I like the idea of walking through layers of the small everyday events of people’s personal history and memories.


Kingston is the fifteenth place where Shadow-walks have occurred. I ask local residents to take me on their “special” walks, those that have been repeated many times and have meaning for them. As we walk I record our conversations and the environmental sounds. Later I walk the route solo, singing the traces of that person’s walk, my voice in a sense becoming the ghost of these memories and associations. The recordings are edited together to become the final work, the Shadow-walk. The listener then takes an interiorized walk through the layers of memory, place and time in Kingston.

Saturday, November 6, 2010 - 5:00pm
Deep Listening Space, 77 Cornell St, Suite 303, Kingston NY. Virtual Gallery on view thoroughout November
Julia Santos Solomon is one of the most successful contemporary Dominican artists on the landscape today. Julia is a multi-faceted artist creating paintings, sculpture, drawings and mixed media. The bright colors of the Caribbean landscape are an important vehicle for her expression. She portrays the mystery and beauty of the vegetation. Julia’s work has been exhibited nationally and abroad. Currently, her work is represented in many public collections, including several museums. Her work was featured in the art publications New Art International 2004 and Acrylic Revolution 2007.

Julia was born in the Dominican Republic and raised in the United States. At age 14, she knew she wanted to become an artist, and pursued her goal. After attending the High School of Art and Design in New York, she received a full scholarship to the Rhode Island School of Design. She attended Brown University while still at RISD. She went to Rome, Italy with RISD’s European Honor’s Program. Over the course of three years, she discovered her kinship with the Italian Renaissance masters. The Italian light awakened her palette and inspired a series of Caribbean landscapes. She became a founding member of The Altos de Chavon School of Design, a Parsons School affiliate, in the Dominican Republic. She moved back to the United States and taught at Parsons School of Design in Manhattan for 18 years. In 1996, she moved to Woodstock, NY where she currently resides.

Introduction to the Ongoing Series, the first of 4 Quarterly Workshops.  Dreams are our deepest source of creativity, in addition to being a portal for the magic and mysteries of inner-dimensional life.  Ancient Egyptian systems which influenced Greece and beyond connect us to our own messages of wisdom.  Timeless structures handed down through the ages assist us in the practice of surfing streams of eternity.  We will explore Egyptian and Greek incubating techniques and evoke Magical Dream spells.  We will use our journals and notebooks to track past, current and future dreaming.  During and between our ongoing classes, we will create dream-inspired poetry, paintings and other art.  All lectures have real time chat line and email Q & A with facilitators.  Tuition $35.  Co-presented by the Ministry of Maat, Inc

Shadow-walks Talk with Artist in Residence Viv Corringham

Thursday, October 7, 2010 - 7:00pm
Free
Deep Listening Space, 77 Cornell St, Suite 303, Kingston NY

Shadow-walks in Kingston, NY - This evening's public talk will introduce artist-in-residence Viv Corringham to the community as she introduces us to her project Shadow-walks.


Shadow-walks is an ongoing project, which involves three main elements: walking with others, listening to environmental sound, and improvised singing. It grew out of an interest in our sense of place and our relationship with places, especially very familiar ones. When we walk through a particular area frequently, I wonder how that affects our psyche, and how we affect the place. James Joyce wrote that places remember events, and I like the idea of walking through layers of the small everyday events of people’s personal history and memories.

Kingston is the fifteenth place where Shadow-walks have occurred. I ask local residents to take me on their “special” walks, those that have been repeated many times and have meaning for them. As we walk I record our conversations and the environmental sounds. Later I walk the route solo, singing the traces of that person’s walk, my voice in a sense becoming the ghost of these memories and associations. The recordings are edited together to become the final work, the Shadow-walk. The listener then takes an interiorized walk through the layers of memory, place and time in Kingston.

The Kingston portion of Shadow-walks will culminate in a sound installation at Deep Listening Space with an opening reception on Saturday, December 4 from 5 to 8 pm.

Viv Corringham is a British vocalist, currently based in Minneapolis, USA, who makes performances, installations and soundwalks.  Her work has been presented extensively worldwide, including recent appearances at Serralves Museum of Contemporary Art, Portugal; New Adventures In Sound Art, Toronto; Abrons Art Center, New York City; Meridian Gallery, San Francisco; Galata Perform, Istanbul; Women in New Music Festival, Fullerton CA; Spark Electronic Music Festival, Minneapolis.  

Articles about her have appeared in Organised Sound (UK), Musicworks (Canada), Playing With Words (UK) and For Those Who have Ears (Ireland). She received a McKnight Composer Fellowship through American Composers Forum in 2006.

 

CDs are available on Slowfoot, Emanem, Innova, Move, ARC Music, Aphasia, Soundworks Unlimited, MASH, Rhiannon, Artship, Third Force and NoMansLand.

An Evening with Pauline Oliveros, Francisco Lopez, Doug Van Nort & Jonas Braasch

Friday, September 17, 2010 - 8:00pm - 10:00pm
$10
Deep Listening Space, 77 Cornell St, Suite 303, Kingston NY
Part of Deep Listening Institute's ‘Under the Radar’ Concert Series.

An evening of psycho-electro-acoustics and free improvisation
featuring Pauline Oliveros, Francisco López, Doug Van Nort and Jonas Braasch

Please join us for a very special evening that promises to span a vast sonic terrain, challenging listener and performer alike through a seamless blend of Deep Listening and Absolute Noise, moving between ever-fluid improvisation and carefully controlled sound manipulation.

This quartet convened for two improvisational sessions between February and May of this year, with López sitting in on a Triple Point recording session and bringing his finely crafted sonic objects-as-instruments, further spanning the electro-acoustic divide that has become Triple Point's calling, with their blending virtual accordion, greis sound transformation system and soprano saxophone. These sessions have since become raw material for the individual artists to construct new visions of this shared sonic body - personal reflections culled from a collective tapestry.

This concert will feature these new personalized interpretations, presented with an expansive 16 channel sound system at the one and only Deep Listening Institute! Moving back from the personal to the collective, this will be followed by the world premiere of the new quartet in full improvisatory mode!  Fragments from this crafted past will blend with reactions to the moment, sonic gestures being shared between players and sculpted within this unique space.  

NOT to be missed!!

Fresh from a week together, 2010 Deep Listening Retreat participants present new and in-process pieces reflecting insights and experiences with teachers Pauline Oliveros, Ione, and Heloise Gold. According to Pauline Oliveros, "Deep Listening® is a philosophy and practice developed by Pauline Oliveros that distinguishes the difference between the involuntary nature of hearing and the voluntary selective nature of listening. The result of the practice cultivates appreciation of sounds on a heightened level, expanding the potential for connection and interaction with one's environment, technology and performance with others in music and related arts. The practice of Deep Listening provides a framework for artistic collaboration and musical improvisation and gives composers, performers, artists of other disciplines, and audiences new tools to explore and interact with environmental and instrumental sounds."

The music, text, movement and media works presented demonstrate a range of approaches by long-time practitioners of Deep Listening® as well as contributions by newer members of this community. This Deep Listening Retreat runs 2-6 August at the IONSRetreatCenter in Petaluma, CA. During that time, Oliveros led participants in mindful engagement with a wide range of sounds, with particular emphasis on the soundscape of the natural world. This listening work expands to include body awareness via Tai Chi and Qi Gong guided by Heloise Gold, and rich dreamwork guided by Ione. Retreatants come from around the world, bringing their unique energies and creativity to the intimacy of the retreat community. Along with teachers Oliveros, Ione, and Gold, they find pathways to deeper creative work and joie de vivre. To paraphrase Deep Listener and virtuosic trombonist Stuart Dempster, "we return the play to playing music."

As of the end of June 2010, the performers will include Deep Listening Certificate Holders Viv Corringham and Tom Bickley, as well as Jay Kreimer and Jennifer Wilsey, who are nearing completion of their studies for the DLI Certificate. Corringham is noted for her work with voice, electronics and environmental sound recordings. Bickley plays recorder and sings often combining digital processing with medieval compositional structures. Jay Kreimer is a builder of remarkable instruments and an accomplished improviser. Jennifer Wilsey is known for her musicianly percussion playing and work with ensembles such as Timeless Pulse. Also performing are Nancy Beckman who plays shakuhachi (trad. Japanese bamboo flute) and composes ritual performance pieces; Mara Helmuth who works with multimedia performances using advanced computer music techniques; David Felton who is on the board of the Deep Listening Institute and percussionist/electronics musician Ben Kreimer.

Deep Listening Space @ the Shirt Factory
The piano style of Connie Crothers is replete with rich textural phrasing and an ability to dissect a composition to expose its barest roots.  Her playing is filled with depth and density, hinting at a somber, seemingly brooding persona, which in reality is counter indicative of her true character.
