Pauline Oliveros

Troy, NY, USA

Since the 1960’s Pauline Oliveros has influenced American Music extensively through her works and with improvisation, electronic music, teaching, myth, ritual, and meditation. She is currently artistic director of Pauline Oliveros Foundation, Darius Milhaud professor at Mills College and professor of composition at Oberlin Conservatory. As John Rockwell, New York Times, states, “On some level, music, sound, consciousness and religion are all one, and she would seem to be very close to that level.”
