Experiments in Sound Meditation with guest facilitator Ernesto Cárcamo Cavazos


Monday March 4 * 7-830pm * RSVP

Join us for the next instalment of our series devoted to the practice of Deep Listening, as coined/taught/enacted by the late composer Pauline Oliveros. For one hour, we will focus on sound. Listening first, with an eye (ear) toward healing, toward a collective experience more than the sum of its parts. There will be vocal and percussive sound production involved at different points. The space will be available for conversation/debriefing/relaxing afterwards. All ages welcome. No prior meditation or musical experience necessary.

This Monday will be facilitated by Ernesto Cárcamo Cavazos. Ernesto Cárcamo Cavazos is a composer and guitarist of contemporary acoustic and electronic music. Born in September 1987 in Mexico City, he has studied classical and electric guitar since age 9 and has been actively composing since age 15. He received an Arts Bachelor degree in music composition from Brown University in 2009, under the tutelage of Gerald Shapiro where he received the Ron Nelson Award for Music Compositional Excellence. Directly following in 2011, he received an MA in composition from Mills College in California, having studied composition with Roscoe Mitchell and Fred Frith receiving the Margaret Lyon Prize for Outstanding Music Student. Ernesto has been active in finding new approaches to composition, reflected in new music for acoustic and electronic ensembles, electronic improvisations, spatially-dependent pieces, and combinations of all three. Although artistically focused on musical experimentation and exploration, his approaches have adapted to fit a wide variety of genres and purposes. The films he has scored have won numerous awards and have been presented internationally in festivals such as South by Southwest, The Locarno Film Festival, BAFICI, Unknown Pleasures, among others. He has performed in Europe and the Americas and is currently involved in a variety of compositional and performative projects. He currently lives in Berlin, Germany.
