Members of the acclaimed International Contemporary Ensemble will perform music by Pauline Oliveros, a living legend in American experimental music. Oliveros is the founder of Deep Listening, a practice of "listening in every possible way to everything possible, to hear no matter what you are doing," and will perform solo works for accordion.

This concert features the following International Contemporary Ensemble musicians: Joshua Rubin, clarinet; David Byrd-Marrow, horn; Mike Lormand, trombone; Josh Modney, violin; Kivie Cahn-Lipman, cello; Jacob Greenberg, keyboard/piano; Paul Hembree, electronics; Nathan Davis, percussion; and Zach Layton, electronics.

A conversation with the artists follows this performance, moderated by New Albion founder, Foster Reed.
Read artist Cory Arcangel's reflections on Pauline Oliveros and the San Francisco Tape Music Center ("an environment that could accommodate Luciano Berio and Janis Joplin") in Artforum.

Read an interview with Pauline Oliveros, the founder of Deep Listening, on the art of listening and responding to environmental conditions in American Mavericks, from the San Francisco Symphony and American Public Media.
