Pauline Oliveros may not be as well known as contemporaries Morton Subotnick or Steve Reich, but, as EB argued in a recent review of her new LP, Water Above, Sky Below Now, she’s helped shape American electronic and experimental music. In her decades-long career, which included a stint in the ’60s at the San Francisco Tape Center, the composer, accordian player and educator has racked up numerous honors, including the prestigious John Cage award in 2012. However, a documentary has never been made about her life. Brooklyn-based filmmaker Daniel Weintraub wants to change that—he’s launched an Indiegogo campaign to finish work on Deep Listening – The Story of Pauline Oliveros. The project touches on Oliveros’ early years in the Bay Area, her Deep Listening Institute, and much more. Find out more and contribute here.
