Dr Ximena Alarcón will be holding a Deep Listening workshop on May 29th as part of UAL Performance Research Group in collaboration with CRiSAP.
* This event is for UAL PhD and MA students only *
‘When you listen, something will happen’ is one of the many intriguing invitations that Pauline Oliveros, pioneer composer, educator, humanitarian and creator of the Deep Listening practice, makes to her students. Deep Listening is a process created by Pauline Oliveros that is informed by expanding the range of audible forms beyond ordinary sound perceptions in daily life. The practice of Deep Listening is intended to heighten awareness of sound, silence and sounding, as these phenomena manifests in our inner and outer sonic environments, bodies and dreams.
This Deep Listening session invites you to develop awareness of listening, as an inner departure to explore your sonic Universe and embrace it. Through energy building exercises, listening meditations, and sounding, you will be guided to experience inner and outer listening, to expand your awareness of sound as it travels in time and space, encountering many possible audible forms, beyond ordinary sound perceptions in daily life.
The session will be facilitated by Ximena Alarcón, an artist who has been studying the practice of Deep Listening since 2008, and who in 2012, became a Deep Listening Certificate holder. Ximena is a Research Fellow at CRiSAP, where she expands her research practice in the form of telematic sonic performances via the Internet, exploring what the in-between space, in the context of migration, sounds like.
