Modern Classical & Sound Impressionists: Roger Goula, The Green Kingdom (Michael Cottone) and Dead Light (Anna Rose Carter & Ed Hamilton)
DreamScenes usually only features new releases, but this month I want to start with an exception in remembrance of Pauline Oliveros.
Among many other things, she will be remembered for her Deep Listening concept.
Concluding this edition with a track by Mario Batkoviç that feels like a (probably unintended) tribute to Oliveros.
In-between, there’s many other things (… and also many strings).
