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 intensive will be led by Sharon Stewart (NL/US) and Björn Eriksson (SWE), both of whom are certified Deep Listening instructors who have studied directly with Pauline Oliveros.
SHARON STEWART studied piano at the Utrecht School of the Arts, Faculty of Music, and later completed a Masters in Music Pedagogy at the Royal Conservatoire, The Hague. She has a private piano practice in Arnhem; is engaged as sound designer in various dance, theater and installation projects; serves as Associate Editor of the Journal of Sonic Studies
; and is currently an independent researcher for the Professorship Theory in the Arts
at ArtEZ University of the Arts in the Netherlands. Sharon Stewart was certified in Deep Listening® with Pauline Oliveros, IONE and Heloise Gold in 2011 and is currently a core teacher in the international, online Deep Listening Intensives
