Deep Listening

Deep Listening är en kreativ filosofi och praxis som innefattar ljud och musik, rörelse och drömarbete. Lyssnandet är centralt.

Praxisen är sprunget ur den amerikanske kompositören och musikern Pauline Oliveros livsverk tillsammans med IONE och Heloise Gold. Genom dagliga kombinationer av rörelseövningar, ljudperformance och arbeten med drömmar så dyker gruppen djupare in lyssnandet och kollaborativa processer. Under veckan kommer det finnas utrymme för kollaborativt skapande såväl som individuellt kreativt arbete och skrivande. Workshopen är utformad för alla som vill utforska och utveckla ett skapande i grupp och individuellt med ljud, musik, drömmar och rörelser. 
Kursen leds av Jennifer Wilsey (US), Sharon Stewart (NL/US) och Björn Eriksson, alla tre certifierade Deep Listening-instruktörer som har studerat för Pauline Oliveros.  

Materialkostnad: 500 kr

Praktisk information kring våra sommarkurser

Deep Listening is a creative philosophy and praxis that includes sound and music, movement and listening to dreams. Listening is central.
This praxis derives from the lifework of the American composer and accordionist Pauline Oliveros, together with IONE and Heloise Gold. Through a daily combination of movement practice, sound performances and dreamwork, the group will dive deeper and deeper into listening and collaborative processes. During the week there will be room for collaborative creating as well as individual journaling and creative works. This workshop is designed for all who wish to explore and develop personal and group creativity with sound, music, dreams and movement.
The workshop will be led by Jennifer Wilsey (US), Sharon Stewart (NL/US) and Björn Eriksson (SWE), all of whom are certified Deep Listening instructors who have studied directly with Pauline Oliveros.
