Pauline Oliveros interview available as podcast

June 26: Tonight, ICASP research collaborator Pauline Oliveros discusses her life as a musician on the "Evening Music" program on WNYC . The first hour is available for streaming soon after 8 p.m. The composer, accordionist and founder of Deep Listening Institute, Oliveros joins David Garland in the studio to discuss her life as a musician, the sounds of her childhood, growing up as a teenager in 1940s Houston, Texas. The program will feature her complete piece, The Beauty of Sorrow, from the album Tara's Room: Two Meditations on Transition and Change.

So one of the things that improvisation has come to mean in the context of highly technological performance is that improvisation is the last claim to the legitimate presence of a human in the performance of music.
