The Center for Deep Listening

The Center for Deep Listening will be participating in daytime programming in honor of the late Pauline Oliveros. The programs will be led by Tomie Hahn and Lindsay Cooper.

Tomie Hahn is an artist and ethnomusicologist. She is the Director of the Center for Deep Listening at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, where she is also an Associate Professor in the Arts Department. She is a performer of shakuhachi (Japanese bamboo flute), nihon buyo (Japanese traditional dance), and experimental performance. Contemplative practices have been a part of her life and pedagogical method for many years. Her artistic and research focus has been the transmission of embodied cultural knowledge, stemming from her life-long practice of traditional Japanese “practice arts” (okeikogoto). Her book, Sensational Knowledge: Embodying Culture through Japanese Dance was awarded the Alan P. Merriam prize (Society for Ethnomusicology). For the last ten years Tomie has collaborated with neuroscientists to explore embodied consciousness.
Lindsay Cooper McKenzie is a certified Deep Listening facilitator. She is a drummer, designer, performer and founding member of Leads Creative, a Cooperative of creative professionals in Durham, NC.
