Weave Soundpainting Orchestra

The Weave Soundpainting Orchestra is an avant-garde musical ensemble that started performing in the Chicago area last year. It is conducted by Sarah Weaver (a friend colleague). They have just launched a new collaborative series with Pauline Oliveros and the Deep Listening Institute, which promises to be a great opportunity for the group. If you have a chance, please go to the concert (info below) and let your friends in Chicago know!!

Weave Soundpainting Orchestra is excited to announce Mercury, the first in the series Planetary Soundpaintings, a two-year collaboration with Deep Listening Institute Ltd. (DLI) an international organization based in Kingston, New York, Pauline Oliveros, President. The series includes 10 productions, one per planet, with guest composers from DLI and visual/installation art by Lisa Abbatomarco. The culminating soundpainting, Earth, will feature the Deep Listening Band (Pauline Oliveros, Stuart Dempster, David Gamper) in March 2008.

Mercury features Al Margolis's drone loops and electronic expressions in tandem with Soundpainting (R) - the live composing sign language of over 750 gestures created by New York composer Walter Thompson for performers working in the medium of structured improvisation. The Mercury retrograde, a famed astrological event, shapes the high point of the production, reflected in the multi-level visual installation of Lisa Abbatomarco. A new sonic landscape follows, with soft bells displaced in time-based loops, which illuminates re-connection and renewed communication with Mercury.
