Dear Deep Listeners, We are anticipating the second annual Deep Listening: Art/Science international conference July 10-13 2014.
Last year's conference was such a wonderful event and it was great to see everyone and to experience all the great work that you are doing in the world.
This year the cost of the conference for attendees is significantly higher than last year. I am hoping that the cost will not deter you from attending so that we can continue to build on the established momentum. The costs for supporting the conference is very much higher than last year. The conference registrations must cover all costs of putting it on - especially putting it on at EMPAC.
I do hope that you will realize the value of the conference to your own work and see your way to attend despite the increased cost.
With all best wishes, Pauline
The Deep Listening: Art/Science conference organizers welcome applications for the second international conference on Deep Listening. This conference provides artists, educators, and researchers an opportunity to creatively share ideas related to the practice, philosophy and science of Deep Listening. Developed by composer and educator Pauline Oliveros, Deep Listening is an embodied meditative practice of enhancing one’s attention to listening. Deep Listening began over 40 years ago with Oliveros’ Sonic Meditations and organically evolved through performances, workshops and retreats. Deep Listening relates to a broad spectrum of other embodied practices across cultures and can be applied to a wide range of academic fields and disciplines.
