Pauline Oliveros

Miya Masaoka & Pauline Oliveros “Accordion Koto” CD "Though an unlikely combination - accordion and koto - it is not so much about the instruments as about the energies of the music that comes from the intensity of listening -- listening as close to 'now' as possible. We know that our consciousness is delayed by a fraction of a second that the brain interprets as now -- however the body is instantaneous in its perception. Thus the phenomena [sic] of playing and becoming conscious of what has played - been played - is a continually surprising experience in such improvisation." - Pauline Oliveros

Pauline Oliveros “Ghostdance” CD The long awaited soundtrack of the Ghostdance music and dance collaboration between Oliveros and Paula Josa-Jones. The Expanded Instrument System (EIS) used in this recording is an evolving electronic sound processing environment dedicated to providing improvising musicians control over various interesting parameters of electronic transformation of their acoustic instruments. Performers each have their own setup which includes their delay and ambience processors, microphones, signal routing and mixing, and a computer which translates and displays control information from foot pedals and switches."

Pauline Oliveros “Lion’s Eye/Lion’s Tale” CD Lion's Eye for Gamelan was commissioned in 1985 by Barbara Benary for Gamelan Son of Lion. Lion's Eye for Synthesizer was commissioned concurrently by Neil Rolnick for iEAR Presents at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. Both versions were performed in 1985. The intention to combine both pieces in order to expand the tempo range of the Gamelan was first realized in May of 1989 in performances by the Berkeley Gamelan in Oakland and San Francisco, California under the direction of Daniel Schmidt. This version of Lion's Eye is recorded on this disc.

Pauline Oliveros “Primordial/Lift” CD Primordial/Lift is based on information concerning the shift in the resonant frequency of the earth from 7.8hz to 13hz. The resonant frequency of the earth was measured as 7.8hz in 1960 and by 1994 the measurement was at 8.6hz and it will rise to 13hz by 2010. At the same time the magnetic fields of the earth are diminishing in strength towards zero point. By the time that 13hz is established as the resonant frequency the magnetic fields will reverse their polarity - North will become South and vice versa. The acceleration from 7.8hz to 13hz of the earth's resonant frequency is represented in Primordial/Lift by a low frequency oscillator.
