Sonder Music, Dance and Art will host a deep listening workshop from 7-9 p.m. Saturday at its location, 225 E. Gray St.
Cost for the workshop is $10 if pre-paid by Friday or $12 at the door. This workshop is an introduction to the deep listening sound meditation practices of composer Pauline Oliveros.
As a fundamental skill for either musician or music enthusiast, deep listening teaches how to actively listen, through listening/ sounding exercises, lightly guided sitting meditations, journaling and gentle movement exercises.
This practice helps cultivate disciplined attention to sound and a deeper kind of engagement with the experience of music. No prior musical training is necessary. Participants should bring a notebook and wear comfortable clothing.
Marc Jensen is offering this workshop as a fundraiser for the Oklahoma Composers Association.
