L'audace gruppo vocale guidato da Jane Alden Vocal Constructivists - noto per esser stato il primo a offrire una lettura del Treatise di Cardew per sole voci - si riunisce questa sera al Cafe Oto londinese per uno speciale omaggio alla compianta Pauline Oliveros: Lullaby for Pauline.

The Vocal Constructivists worked closely with American composer, philosopher, writer, activist, and visionary Pauline Oliveros, who passed away in November 2016. The group pays tribute to her life and work in a wide-ranging programme that draws from over six decades of her career. Featured works will include her 1961 Sound Patterns, awarded the Gaudeamus International Composers Award in 1962, text scores from Sonic Meditations (1971), Wind Horse (1989), and the participatory A New Indigo Peace (2008). As well as works by Oliveros, the ensemble will perform Robert Ashley’s She Was a Visitor (1967), and new commissions – all receiving their world premiere – by composers who knew and worked with her.
