BODILY LISTENING IN PLACE, by Ellen Waterman
Pauline Oliveros taught us that listening is not hearing. In consultation with Deaf artist collective SPiLL PROpagation, I created this score to develop a more expansive, intersensory and inclusive concept of listening beyond audition. Full score including video with ASL is available at https://naisa.ca/media-archive/sound-art-text-scores/bodily-listening-in-place/
