Deep Listening Publications is a unique annotated artists' catalog committed to music and sound works that transcend cultural boundaries and stretch the mind.

The Deep Listening Catalog is curated by Pauline Oliveros, an internationally acclaimed composer, performer, author and lecturer. Oliveros has worked at the forefront of new music composition since the fifties and today is considered one of the world's most distinguished experimental composers.

"What composers are at the leading edge of new music in the twenty-first century? If there is a leading edge then what is it? What composers and artists will synthesize or codify the swiftly changing characteristics of our time and make it manifest in our music? Who listens to new music? What is its importance? Answers to these questions might be found through new composers within this catalog now and as it expands in the future."
- Pauline Oliveros

FEATURED ARTIST

Henry Cowell

 

Henry Cowell may be best known as a creator of “tone cluster” compositions, which he began writing while in his early teens, but his infuence has been far broader and much deeper. As founder in 1925 of the New Music Society, he became a concert impresario for works by, among others, Carl Ruggles, Arnold Schoenberg, Charles Ives and Leo Ornstein; and publisher from 1927 to 1958 of New Music: A Quarterly of Musical Compositions. His many students included George Gershwin, John Cage, and Lou Harrison, but his interests extended beyond western classical traditions, and his radio program, “Music of the World’s Peoples,” introduced a large audience to world music long before it was fashionable. Just as Cowell’s groundbreaking book of 1930, New Musical Resources, continues to inspire successive generations of composers, Essential Cowell is key to understanding the origins and expanding dimensions of contemporary music.
