Bowerbird is excited to present the music of Pauline Oliveros performed by the Arcana New Music Ensemble. One of the leading composers and performers of the 20th and 21st century, Pauline Oliveros’ career spanned four decades and influenced generations of musicians. While Oliveros is most widely known for her improvisationally centered Deep Listening work, her compositional output spans a range of styles including jagged atonal music to experiments with theatrical lighting and dance.

Oliveros: The Witness (1980)
Oliveros: To Valerie Solanas and Marilyn Monroe in Recognition of Their Desperation (1970)
Oliveros: Single Stroke Roll Meditation (1990)
Oliveros: Tree/Peace (1984)
Oliveros: Trio for accordion, trumpet, and string bass (1960/1)

The Arcana New Music Ensemble is Bowerbird’s resident ensemble for performing interesting, beautiful, and unconventional music in interesting, beautiful, and unconventional spaces. Founded in 2016, the ensemble comprises a flexible roster of more than 30 musicians and performs regularly in Philadelphia. Past concerts have featured the music of Julius Eastman, Galina Ustvolskaya, Morton Feldman, Moondog, among others.
