EMPAC conference on Pauline Oliveros's Deep Listening: call for papers

This July, New York arts organisation EMPAC is hosting a conference on Pauline Oliveros's Deep Listening method. Oliveros developed Deep Listening in the early 90s, as a sonic meditation which involves focusing on the detailed sounds of your surrounding environment, and listening with an open mind.

Papers are welcomed on any areas relating to deep listening, from teaching and workshops to meditation, performance and music technology. A list of suggestions (and how to submit proposals) is here.

A workshop takes place 7–11 July, and is followed by the two day conference in Troy, New York. Deadline for submissions is 15 April.
