Pauline Oliveros documentary

An Indiegogo campaign started to fund a documentary about Pauline Oliveros

Filming has started on the first feature length documentary about the US composer and philosopher Pauline Oliveros. Film maker Daniel Weintraub spent the last year filming the composer as she worked and travelled around the north east of America. He has now started an Indiegogo campaign to raise the funds to complete the filming and cover production costs. These include his plans to travel to Houston, Texas, where Oliveros was born, as well as interviewing the likes of Morton Subotnik and Ramon Sender, with whom she worked at the The San Francisco Tape Music Center. Weintraub also hopes to purchase the necessary equipment to recreate the tape machine based delay system that Oliveros developed and used during her time at The San Francisco Tape Music Center.

At the time of writing, the campaign has raised $9080 and has 19 days to go.
