“Our work aims to explore new listening strategies, unusual acoustic environments, expanded instrument technologies and new relationships with audiences.”

Deep Listening Band is an improvisational group which was founded in 1988 by Pauline Oliveros (accordion), David Gamper (keyboards), and Stuart Dempster (trombone, didjeridu). The group is a collaborative exploration of sound and of social interaction between musicians and others.

Collaborators have included Thomas Buckner (voice), Ellen Fullman (Long String Instrument), Joe Giardullo (saxophone), Fritz Hauser (percussion), Urs Leimgruber (saxophone), Julie Lyon Balliett (voice and invisible dancing), and Joe McPhee (saxophone). The Deep Listening Band actively tours, at times performing in unique environmental settings.
