Tune in for this special broadcast produced from the recordings of Kingston-based composer Pauline Oliveros' Text Scores performed at Framing the Viewshed: Groundswell at the Olana State Historic Site. Oliveros is a pioneering composer, accordionist, sound artist, and founder of The Deep Listening Institute located in Kingston, New York. Her Text Scores are performance pieces that are participatory and interactive. In Rock Piece each participant chooses a pair of resonant rocks to use as percussive instruments, and establishes an independent pulse with the rocks. Environmental Dialogue is a group meditation informed by participants’ awareness of the sounds within a specific environment. Each participant individually and gradually reinforces the pitch of any one environmental sound source, vocally, mentally or with an instrument. In Consideration of the Earth is a composition for solo brass or wind instrument. Participants first listen in all directions, and then turn and play, interacting with sounds perceived or imagined, to the North, East, South, West, and Center. In Sound Piece July 1998 each performer prepares a number of sounds to present within a pre-determined duration. Sounds may come from any sort of sound source, but should have it's own character. The sound may not be identifiable as a fragment or phrase of music. Framing the Viewshed: Groundswell took place on September 22, 2013 and was a co-presentation of The Olana Partnership and Wave Farm's WGXC.
