B I O G R A P H Y Pauline Oliveros

Kingston resident Pauline Oliveros (1932) is widely recognized as one of America's most important composers of the 20th century. A leader of the avant-garde and a pioneer of improvisatory music, alternate tuning systems, contemporary accordion playing, electronics and multi-media events, Oliveros continues to be a vital force through continuing performances, and through Deep Listening®, a lifetime practice fundamental to her work. Currently she serves as Distinguished Research Professor of Music at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, NY and as Darius Milhaud Composer-in-residence at Mills College in Oakland, CA.
