Does sound have consciousness? Can you imagine listening beyond the edge of your own imagination?
Camden Art Centre and Ignota Books are pleased to celebrate the 50th anniversary of pioneering musician Pauline Oliveros’ Quantum Listening. This marks the latest in a QUANTUM LISTENING season of events that will explore the roots and legacies of Deep Listening® with a broad curiosity toward vibration, resonance and altered states.
Join us for an evening of sonic meditation, ambient resonance and abyssal sounds hosted by Ignota’s Susanna Davies-Crook and Camden Art Centre’s Matt Williams with anti-disciplinary artist Vivienne Griffin.
Quantum Listening is a manifesto for listening as activism. Through simple yet profound exercises, Oliveros shows how Deep Listening is the foundation for a radically transformed social matrix: one in which compassion and peace form the basis for our actions in the world.
For the occasion, artist Aura Satz has produced limited edition prints taken from the Tuning Fork spells made for Ignota’s Quantum Listening publication. This event constitutes a node in Ignota’s new membership portal The Mountain: a platform for aural exploration and sonic content including poetry readings, music mixes, weird tech, ritual and practice commissioned by Ignota and Ignota’s Pillars of the Mountain Himali Singh Soin, Jay Springett, Tabitha Thorlu-Bangura and Leila Sadeghee.
