ORONO – Pauline Oliveros will offer a presentation on Tuesday, Nov. 17 frpm 7-8:30 p.m. at the Innovative Media Research and Commercialization Center, 104 Stewart Commons, UMaine.

As an invaluable contributor to contemporary American Music, Pauline Oliveros’ career is over 50 years of indispensable music making. In 2012, Oliveros was awarded the John Cage Award. She is also the founder of the Deep Listening Institute. Her primary instrument is the accordion; her work explores finding new sounds by way of finding new uses for old ones. Her life as a composer, performer and humanitarian is about opening her own and others’ sensibilities to the universe and facets of sounds.

As a part of the IMRC Center’s artist lecture series, Oliveros, will visit the UMaine campus, give graduate studio visits, and give a presentation. The lecture is free and open to the public. Those from all disciplines with varying degrees of interest and experience in music, performance, and art are encouraged to come.

Opened in 2013, the IMRC Center is a hub for learning, creating and producing. It is the most recent of the portfolio of the University of Maine’s facilities that support innovation and economic development. The IMRC Center is supported by a range of expert instructors and a community of collaborators and has a variety of Community Memberships and resources available to the public.

“Tuesdays at the IMRC” is sponsored by the Intermedia MFA Program, The Department of New Media, the University of Maine Cultural Affairs/Distinguished Lectures Series, the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, and Correll Professorship in New Media.
