Storm Stereo #17: Deep Listening

Inspired by and in memory of Pauline Oliveros and her concept of deep listening, I prepared a show sans commentary. What’s the point of words anyway?

“When I like something, then I discover something that I have been before, that is profoundly already within me. It resonates, like a piano that you hit.”

—Karlheinz Stockhausen on music

“When I hear what we call music, it seems to me that someone is talking – and talking about his feelings or about his ideas of relationships. I don’t need sound to talk to me.”

—John Cage on silence

Our individual probability of existing right now is 1 in 550,343,279,001. Don’t waste time on fear; you never know when you’ll be back at zero.

With love from Cygnus X-1
