Today's program will be an exploration of October's theme of Deep Listening.

Dr. Matthew Tift, a musicologist and yoga teacher, will lead this virtual program that will include a discussion and opportunities for reflection on the practice of deep listening developed by the composer Pauline Oliveros. Deep listening incorporates aspects of improvisation, electronic music, ritual, and meditation, inviting participants to listen and respond to environmental conditions. Oliveros describes Deep Listening as "a way of listening in every possible way to everything possible, to hear no matter what you are doing."

Everyone is welcome to join us in the program, and participants are encouraged -- but certainly not required -- to bring headphones or speakers to help immerse in the musical examples.

Today's meeting is via Zoom, and co-hosted by Lake Fellowship members Kristin Fulkerson and Terry McGlynn. You can join the group starting at 10:15 a.m. and the program will begin at 10:30.
