365 scores for listening in celebration of the legacy of groundbreaking composer Pauline Oliveros.
A Year of Deep Listening is a publication of 365 scores for listening gathered by the Center for Deep Listening in celebration of the legacy of groundbreaking composer Pauline Oliveros.
Originally begun online, in honor of what would have been Oliveros' 90th birthday (May 30, 2022), the project shared one score per day across social media for 365 days. The book version of A Year of Deep Listening brings these scores together into one beautiful and historic volume. An expression of the Deep Listening community, the scores were created by over 300 artists—ranging from prize winning composers to ear-minded grocery store clerks, from those who worked closely with Oliveros for decades to those who never met her.
Stephanie Loveless is a sound and media artist. She currently directs the Center for Deep Listening at Rensselaer and is a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Arts and Director at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, in upstate New York.
