Deep Listening legend Pauline Oliveros live concert with Alan Courtis is being released on vinyl via SpleenCoffin.
The Telematic Concert brought together American electronic music pioneer Pauline Oliveros with Argentinian experimental musician Alan Courtis (Reynols), improvising across continents for the Deep Listening Institute’s Dream Festival in October, 2009 — Oliveros in person in Kingston, NY, Courtis piped in digitally from Buenos Aires. The resulting exchange of Oliveros’ accordion drones and expanded instrument system with Courtis’ unstringed guitar feedback, objects, and processing sounds as fresh as ever, both hyper-focused and frenzied. Oliveros’ forward-thinking work with “telematic music”–remote collaborative performance using telecommunications technology–is yet another facet of her relevance as an important forebearer of the current cultural moment. Recordings of the concert remained unreleased for a decade, until now.
Telematic Concert marks both the performance’s first release, as well as the first instalment in Spleencoffin’s new Vault Series, which will focus on unreleased recordings from artists’ archives. Download codes included.
