In advance of her evening performance, sound artist Stephanie Loveless will lead an introduction to, and embodied exploration of, the instruction scores of pioneering composer Pauline Oliveros. We will explore practices of listening and sounding that are designed to help us engage more creatively with each other and the world around us. All-regardless of musical background or ability-are invited to participate!
