In Pauline Oliveiros’ Deep Listening she proposes to listen to the space that surrounds you with a ‘global attention’ alternated with a ‘focal attention’ that you follow till the end when something catches your attention.
Kirsty and An applied this exercise at the table for a conversation with some chosen objects. They listened and imagined a score for themselves, like f.ex. this hommage to JC:
– take sounds as a score and objects as the instruments
– perform the score with focus on time, texture, movement, force, position, weight
