Pauline Oliveros
Tara's Room

Pauline Oliveros was a trailblazing experimental electronic musician who also plays the accordion. She coined the term ‘deep listening’, originally a phrase describing the time she composed music whilst being 14 feet underground. It is now regarded as relating to music of a spiritual and meditative nature. Tara’s Room is two sides of deep and sensitive music that has been recommended for people going through spiritual change, but is also fine to listen to anytime. Oliveros died in 2016, aged 74.

Pauline Oliveros & Guy Klucevsek
Sounding / way

Sounding / Way is a collaboration between American composer, electronic pioneer and accordion player, Pauline Oliveros and fellow accordionist, Guy Klucevsek who has worked with all sorts of artists from Laurie Anderson to Kronos Quartet. Oliveros created deep listening - spiritual and meditative music for mind and body. Sounding/Way was only ever released on cassette in 1986, so this vinyl pressing is a real treat.

Pauline Oliveros
Reverberations I

Pauline Oliveros is perhaps best known for her peerless minimalist/drone explorations on accordion, her 1982 record ‘Accordion and Voice’ very much a landmark in the genre. Equally intriguing, however, are her experiments with electronic equipment. The double LP ‘Reverberations 1’ is the beginning of a series that looks to put the entirety of 2012's mammoth, 12 CD, archival release of this electronic work to wax.   

Pauline Oliveros
Electronic Works 1965+1966

Early electronic expansions from American Pauline Oliveros. Electronic Works 1965+1966 are a series of analogue gems from Pauline's recorded out put. She built a lot of her own equipment and constructed numerous pieces through improvisation. Also, she experimented with a multitude of analogue effects and gadgets, similar to the Radiophonic Workshop and EMS in England. These recordings are a foray into mid-centaury avant-garde electronics. Out on CD from Paradigm Discs.

Pauline Oliveros and Ione
Water Above Sky Below Now

Pauline Oliveros and the artistic director of her Deep Listening Institute, Ione, get together for a new LP on the Morphine label. Water Above Sky Below Now was produced using Oliveros’ very own Expanded Instrument System, which processes her accordion and Ione’s vocals into huge abstracted drones.

Pauline Oliveros / Zeena Parkins
Presenca Series 001

Archive release from avant-garde harpist / composer Zeena Parkins and legendary deep listener Pauline Oliveros. Presenca Series 001 is the result of the formerly-defunct Lucky Kitchen label delving into the vaults of the Serralves Foundation, digging up a side’s worth of sound art for each artist. On audiophile-grade vinyl.

Pauline Oliveros + Musiques Nouvelles
Four Meditations / Sound Geometrics

Major new work from experimental legend Pauline Oliveros, here working with orchestral ensemble Musiques Nouvelles. Four Meditations and Sound Geometrics are pieces that involve recording and relocation of the orchestras’ sounds while they perform, using Oliveros’ ‘Expanded Instrument System’: the orchestra then responds to its transformed self. On Sub Rosa.

Pauline Oliveros
To Valerie Solanas

A release from the vaults of legendary practitioner of deep listening Pauline Oliveros. To Valerie Solanas is an orchestral piece that is only now being made commercially available (thanks to Roaratorio). The LP contains both the 1970 premiere and a 1977 recording featuring a 43-piece orchestra. This piece is far too strong to have languished out of print for so long: have a listen!

Pauline Oliveros
The Wanderer

This CD is one of a handful of collected recordings from postwar sonic pioneer Pauline Oliveros. Composed in 1982, The Wanderer is a large suite of music exploring extreme use of the accordion, including reed resonance drones and stabbing rhythmic drive. Here you can hear the world premiere of the piece, performed on the 27 January 1983 at Marymount Manhattan Theatre, featuring Oliveros herself on solo accordion.

Pauline Oliveros
Accordion & Voice

One of the Important Records release series celebrating the work of San Francisco Tape Music Centre alumni Pauline Oliveros. Channeling the essence of mountains and clouds into her meditations using a custom-build electronic improvisation instrument, Oliveros uses the sounds of the accordion and human voice to carefully craft some tonal mirages.

Pauline Oliveros
Reverberations: Tape & Electronic Music 1961-1970

Here we have a 12 (twelve) CD box set of early, unreleased tracks from Pauline Oliveros to celebrate her 80th birthday. It runs in chronological order beginning with her first ever recording back in 1961 and therefore functions as a document of the progression of early electronic music.  Most of the pieces here have never been released on CD. Contains extensive liner notes.  Oliveros is a legendary figure in electronic music producing a large back catalogue of recordings, publications and musical compositions.

Pauline Oliveros/ Jesse Stewart
The Dunrobin Session

Less droney than I’m used to with Pauline Oliveros: instead, the tracks on this release with Jesse Stewart sound like improvisations, Oliveros on accordion and Stewart on drums (or possibly only one drum). Quite nice to hear such a rare instrumental pairing, and the duo go to some interesting places with it. On Nuun Records.
