Event Description
Sounding Difference / Listening Care

***SOLD OUT***

An open level listening and sounding event for a collective creative experience

The text scores of Pauline Oliveros are spoken word instructions that are accessible to all: they propose listening strategies and voice toning based on the universal system of seven vowels, the breath, and one's own senses as sources for collective improvisation. Consider Oliveros' thought on listening as multi sensory perception, as care, as a map for social and environmental evolution, as self-organizing sonic beauty,

This will be an experiential gathering to focus on well being and inclusivity in relation to listening attention: to our environment and the more than human sound field, in a memory archive and creative imaginative world making sense. 

In this resonant space, begin with land and body of water acknowledgement, internal listening, a warm up for sounding, toning in microtonal difference tones, exploring the Sonic Meditations and improvisatory Text Scores of Oliveros. Simple phrases that show the way into a sound field.


We strongly encourage masking at all times. For our full policy, click here


Please contact in advance for specific access accommodations.

This is an experiential listening practice to enhance your own. We welcome neurodiversity requiring attendants, dDeaf participants and other distinctions of ability, mixed cognitive abilities, and HSP, with advance communication and caregiver attendance as needed.

We welcome gender, racial and cultural, and age diversity into a non therapeutic collective creative experience and ask for a tone of respect and kindness.

NOTE: 918 Bathurst, is not currently wheelchair accessible (two half-flights of stairs to enter the performance space, and one flight to access the washrooms)


We expect all attendees and community members to respect one another, and to respect the work that was created for you to explore. We will not tolerate harm or harmful behaviour of any kind. View our policy here.
