Dreaming/Remembering Pauline Oliveros

A simple slideshow of photos of Pauline Oliveros (1932-2016) to accompany a soundscape created for live performance memorial tributes to her. The soundscape is the result of a brief dream I had of Pauline on February 17, 2017.

"I am in a clearing by a gurgling stream. I hear a helicopter approach. It lands beside me. It's Pauline! She's smiling ear-to-ear and chuckling in her inimitable manner. She shouts "Get in!" I get in. She says "Let's go," and we take off. I awaken and realize she hasn't mentioned where she's taking me."

The soundscape includes the inevitable helicopter sounds and clips of Pauline speaking about Deep Listening and chuckling, along with a recording of an improvisation she performed at Colorado University, Colorado Springs (UCCS) in April, 2013. She was joined later by the Peak Frequency Ensemble.
