It's with sadness that we join the reports that experimental musician, composer, and educator Pauline Oliveros has passed away at 84. A couple articles on Oliveros' influential and ground breaking work can be found here and here.

In a small tribute, we'd like to share some of the recordings that we have covered on the Free Jazz Blog:

Deep Listening Band: Great Howl at Town Haul (Imprec, 2012)
Deep Listening Band: Needle Drop Jungle (Taiga Records, 2012)

  1. Very sad news indeed. I was listening to her recent album with Roscoe Mitchell, Wadada Leo Smith & John Tilbury earlier this week. I think her music, her approach to music, what she brought in terms of insights and novelty truly remarkable. She was an inspiration for many musicians and her music a joy to many lovers of genuine and intelligent music. Our thoughts are with her family and friends.
