Ghost Ensemble is dedicated to new musical perspectives that explore the experience of listening, creating sonic spaces that shift our attention, perception, or experience of time. Taking the Deep Listening practice of Pauline Oliveros as a point of departure, the ensemble begins with her question, in Imaginary Meditations: “Can you imagine listening beyond the edge of your own imagination?” Through long-term collaborations with composers, Ghost develops new works that share a meditative practice or an inclination toward altered consciousness, metaphysical exploration, and the physicality of sound.

 

The program will include works by Pauline Oliveros, Ben Richter, Sky Macklay, Andrew C. Smith, and more.
