Sonic Meditations / Greetings to the tree
We would like to invite you to a Pauline Oliveros’ Sonic Meditations session organized by Artur Vidal and Fiorella Angelini. ?The event will be held next Sunday 10th April 2022 at 12:00 pm in Regent’s Park (?Outercircle and Park Square east entrance, London NW1 4LB).
? Oliveros’ Sonic Meditations are 25 text scores created in the early 70′ that bring together music and meditation in order to increase awareness often in a playful way.
?For this session, led by the saxophone player Artur Vidal, we invite you to experience a reflective listening to the sound of the environment. Finally, Fiorella Angelini, in collaboration with the artist Izzy Nakhla, will be reading a poem as part of her recent research about the tree Araucaria araucana (Monkey Puzzle tree), reflecting on botany, autoethnography, and identification through nature ?
