July 18 is World Listening Day. Hashtags: #WLD2017,  , #deeplistening

This year’s theme is “Listening to the Ground.” WLD 2017 reflects and honors the life and legacy of Pauline Oliveros, who died at age 84 on November 26, 2016.

World Listening Day is hosted by the World Listening Project. Contests and walks around the world focus attention on improving listening skills and conserving critical soundscapes. July 18 was chosen because it is the birthday of the Canadian composer R. Murray Schafer, one of the founders of the Acoustic Ecology movement.

Deep Listening
Pauline Oliveros was a force of nature, a composer guided by her interest in harnessing cutting-edge technologies and her lifelong practice in deep listening which she defined as “listening in every possible way to every thing possible to hear no matter what you are doing. Such intense listening includes the sounds of daily life, of nature, of one’s own thoughts as well as musical sounds.”

Quotes
“Sometimes we walk on the ground, sometimes on sidewalks or asphalt, or other surfaces. Can we find ground to walk on and can we listen for the sound or sounds of ground? Are we losing ground? Can we find new ground by listening for it?” – Pauline Oliveros (1932-2016)
