The music of Pauline Oliveros

  • The Rotunda 4014 Walnut Street Philadelphia, PA, 19104 United States (map)

Arcana is excited to present the music of Pauline Oliveros.   One of the leading composers and performers of the 20th and 21st century, Pauline Oliveros' career spanned four decades and influenced generations of musicians. While Oliveros is most widely known for her improvisationally centered Deep Listening work, her compositional output spans a range of styles including jagged atonal music to experiments with theatrical lighting and dance. 


  • Oliveros: The Witness (1980) 
  • Oliveros: To Valerie Solanas and Marilyn Monroe in Recognition of Their Desperation (1970) 
  • Oliveros: Single Stroke Roll Meditation (1990) 
  • Oliveros: Tree/Peace (1984) 
  • Oliveros: Trio for accordion, trumpet, and string bass (1960/1)
