Pauline Oliveros’s Sonic Meditations
Hosted by Synthese
During LGW OFF, audience members can actively participate in Pauline Oliveros’s Sonic Meditations and bring their own instruments. These meditations are based on a collection of text pieces designed as a guide for group improvisation based around breath and sound. The main goal is the cultivation of community, self-awareness and emotional health. In Oliveros’s own words: “The group may develop positive energy which can influence others who are less experienced. Members of the group may achieve greater awareness and sensitivity to each other. Music is a welcome by-product of this activity.”
The meditation is led by ensemble Oerknal in collaboration with musicians of Het Wilde Westen.
