On April 18th, at the Kitchen in NYC is “BIG DEEP”, a Benefit concert hosted by the Friends of Deep Listening Institute! Pauline Oliveros, the president of the Institute, was my composition professor in college and we have been friends since. In fact, you can see the recent issue of BOMB magazine for an interview I did with her. here. I am on the benefit committee for this and although I am not directly participating, I can promise it will be awesome.
As I was saying, its gonna be a great event. Here is some text form the release:
The lineup of performances include a duo with Roscoe Mitchell and Pauline Oliveros, the Deep Listening Band with Stuart Dempster, David Gamper and Pauline Oliveros, video artist Benton-C Bainbridge and an after party with DJ Olive and DJ Oliveros.
In addition to these special performances, Deep Listening Institute will be honoring Roscoe Mitchell with the 2009 Deep Listening Golden Ear award. Deep Listening Institute recognizes Mitchell’s astute contributions to the world of music. The Golden Ear award was established in 2007 by Deep Listening Institute founder Pauline Oliveros & artistic director Ione in order to recognize musicians who in their practice are great listeners. Roscoe Mitchell will be the third artist to be honored with this unique award.
The concert is a fundraising event with proceeds going towards the Deep Listening Institute, Ltd. and its ongoing projects. Donors have the opportunity to purchase special VIP tickets at $250 each which includes a cocktail reception and reserved seating. General admission is $100 with advance purchase and $125 at the door. This $100 ticket includes the concerts and afterparty with DJ Olive. With awareness of these lean times, $35 tickets will be available at the door for the concerts only. The Kitchen is located at 512 West 19th St between 10th and 11th Avenues, New York City.
