One concept that has come up several times in previous podcasts is the Deep Listening movement, a system of applied listening focus that was developed and is championed by today's guest, Pauline Oliveros. Ms. Oliveros was kind enough to spend a little time explaining the history, concepts and futures of Deep Listening, and helped me get a better feel for what is involved - and how it can help ones artistic perspective.
I'll admit something here - I was a little flustered during this conversation. Pauline is a personal 'hero', and her history places her in the center of many of the things I hold dear. So please forgive me if I'm a little gushy... <blush>
If you want more information, please check out the books mentioned in the podcast, or visit deeplistening.org (for Deep Listening information) and paulineoliveros.us (for information on Pauline's work).
Podcast #40! Thanks to everyone for their support, all of the kind emails and social media messages that I get, and for your continued listenership. You all make this so worthwhile!
