Accordion Noir 2018-05-30: Pauline Oliveros returns

May 31, 2018

It’s already been a year and a half since feminist accordion avant-gardist Pauline Oliveros gave her bellows the final squeeze, and already in the popular consciousness when you hear someone discussing a “drone” you probably think of quadcopters instead of long, sustained notes played on a free reed block.  But her legacy of Deep Listening and extraordinarily long accordion recordings remains, and on this occasion — her birthday — Bruce reminds you of what the fuss was all about.  Click here for digital audio of tonight’s hourlong episode, and read on for the (very brief) playlist:

* Pauline Oliveros – Tara’s Room – Tara’s Room (1987) [with no accordion!] – http://deeplistening.org/
* Pauline Oliveros – The Beauty of Sorrow – Tara’s Room (1987) – http://deeplistening.org/
* Pauline Oliveros, Stuart Dempster, Panaiotis. – Ione – Deep Listening (1989) – http://deeplistening.org/
* LaSaM – Tina Pearson – Tectonach – Sonic Whisper concert – Victoria, BC, Canada – Chris Reiche (Yamaha DX7), Kristy Farkas (grand piano) and Tina Pearson (accordion, voice) in concert November, 2008 in Victoria, BC. Recorded by Mario Milat.
