Bye Bye Butterfly

​I am eternally grateful to Pauline Oliveros. I’ll never forget the Deep Listening workshop we did with her in 2005. I’ve turned to those techniques from the workshop and her book many times since as a player and listener. One of the exercises involved the group singing in a circle with our right hands on our hearts and our left on the next person’s back directly behind their heart. Eventually I found myself standing beside Pauline and I’ve never felt anything like the literal, physical warmth glowing from her heart into my hand.
