Rabble Without A Cause
Wednesday March 16th, 2011 with Bernard Stepien
american composer and accordionist Pauline Oliveros

from the press release: A true pioneer in the fields of electronic music, free improvisation, and contemporary composition, Pauline Oliveros has been at the forefront of several major musical innovations over the past four decades. The recipient of many honours, she received the 2010 William Schuman award, one of the most prestigious awards for American composers. Her performance practice is rooted in what she calls Deep Listening®, a musical philosophy that is intended to heighten awareness of sound, silence, and sounding.  No less a figure than John Cage once remarked "Through Pauline Oliveros and Deep Listening I finally know what harmony is.... It's about the pleasure of making music." In preparation for this exceptional concert, tonight we will play Pauline Oliveros Primordial/Lift 1998 CD.
