Deep Listening: The Story of Pauline Oliveros chronicles the life of Pauline Oliveros, a composer, performer, teacher, philosopher and electronic music pioneer who left her mark on the history of contemporary music. She played an essential role as master of the accordion, mentor to many musicians, and technological innovator and helped develop tools to enable musicians to play together across great distances, and pioneered the use of software to enable people with disabilities to create music. This movie reveals how Oliveros transcended musical and technological barriers to forge a unique path in the world of music, becoming a symbol of creativity, innovation, and openness to all who seek to explore the boundaries of sound art. Her influence continues to inspire current generations, opening up new perspectives on the future of music and listening.
