Pauline Oliveros, Arts Professor of Practice has composed more than 100 text score pieces over four decades of creative work. Now, those pieces have been collected in one comprehensive volume, ANTHOLOGY OF TEXT SCORES, and include individual and group meditations, as well as solo and ensemble performance pieces.
The collection provides invaluable resources for performing musicians, music students and anyone interested in the life work of one of the most unique voices in modern music. ANTHOLOGY OF TEXT SCORES features an introduction by Brian Pertl, Dean of Lawrence Conservatory of Music in Appleton, Wisconsin, and a book blurb by flutist Claire Chase, founder of the International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE) and a MacArthur Fellow.
“I am very excited to have so many of my pieces in this collection readily available for performance,” says Oliveros. “I am even more excited by the musicians who are performing the pieces."
Claire Chase wrote: “It is difficult to imagine a more quietly—indeed often silently—influential artist, thinker and Renaissance woman of our time than Pauline Oliveros, whose visionary and courageous work has transformed contemporary music…This book is a gift to all of us. It is a luminous invitation to everyone everywhere—adults, children, aficionados, novices, artists, audiences—to begin to hear the world as music.”
