Seeds of Sounds: Listening as performance in community
Performance-workshops with Jane Rigler, flutes & electronics
Workshop: Saturday, May 11, 1-4pm R
RSVP here.
Performance: Sunday, May 12, 7:30pm
As a flutist, performer-composer, improviser, and Deep Listening® (DL) Certificate teacher Jane Rigler’s concerts and workshops promote multiple listening modalities through a series of invitational, communal activities that were created and/or inspired by US composer/performer Pauline Oliveros (1932-2016). Jane has been trained by the founders of the DL Institute now housed at the Center for Deep Listening at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) in Troy, NY, directed by Tomie Hahn. Being part of this growing global community of musicians, artists and scientists inspires Jane to design events that offer inclusive opportunities for “a heightened consciousness of the world of sound and the sound of the world.” 
Her workshop at Open Space will engage participants in activities exploring sound walk/mapping and graphic notations, informed by the context of Schine & White's Field Guides for Listeners installation. Participants are invited to explore sounds through playful and contemplative activities that include word games, poetry, movement, walking and drawing a “sound map” of their experiences. Bodies, breath, and any other means of making sound are all welcomed...
Rigler's Sunday evening performance will include recent works for soloist with and without electronics, as well as new work realized during her residency in Victoria. Possible guest artists TBD.
