Pauline Oliveros

SASSAS, Harmony Project, and Center for the Arts Eagle Rock present Kids Play Oliveros, a free workshop series introducing young adults to experimental musician and composer Pauline Oliveros. This is the second iteration of the series, following last year’s successful Kids Play Cage, which introduced youth to pioneering composer John Cage.

The series culminates with a FREE student performance open to the public on Sunday, Sept. 7, 2014 at 2pm at the Center for the Arts Eagle Rock.
Online reservations recommended.

Kids Play Oliveros is facilitated by the founding members of the Southland Ensemble (Eric KM Clark, James Klopfleisch and Christine Tavolacci), who will lead three days of workshops guiding students through the music and ideas of Pauline Oliveros.

3 Student Workshops: Wednesday, Sept. 3

Students will have the opportunity to interactively learn about these ideas through watching and discussing original footage of Oliveros, performing her compositions using traditional and non-traditional instruments, as well as the opportunity to compose music themselves. Students must possess curiosity and a love of music, but need not be well versed in an instrument to participate.

The workshop will culminate with a final concert on Sunday, September 7th, featuring works by Pauline Oliveros as well as student compositions. In order to participate in this concert, students must attend all three workshops. However, this event is free and open to the public to attend.
