Tune in to the Sounds of Your World - With Lisa Barnard Kelley

Tune in to the sounds that compose your world. This summer, join us for Deep Listening Workshops, based on the practice of Deep Listening developed by composer and sound pioneer Pauline Oliveros. Participants explore the difference between passive hearing and active listening, and delve into other aspects of the practice such as sonic meditations, body awareness, and listening to the sounds of daily life, nature, one’s own thoughts, imagination, and dreams.

No previous experience is needed.

“Deep listening is my life practice.” —Pauline Oliveros

This session is facilitated by Lisa Barnard Kelley.

Presented with the Center for Deep Listening at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.


About the Facilitator

Lisa Barnard Kelley is an Improvising vocalist and writer. Her first introduction to Deep Listening began on a journey with Pauline Oliveros and her collaborator Ione to Southern Italy, where she studied the mysteries of the Black Madonna while also taking measurements of the acoustical resonance of sacred sites. The journey’s intersection of science and the sacred impacted Lisa profoundly, and she spent the next twelve years working closely with Oliveros and Ione as a staff member and artist of the Deep Listening Institute and Ione’s nonprofit Ministry of Maat, performing in numerous festivals and concerts. She completed her Deep Listening Certificate after being the Conference Director for the 2nd Deep Listening Conference in Troy, New York. Kelley has assisted at Deep Listening Retreats in New York, Spain, and the UK, and she facilitates workshops throughout the Hudson Valley.
