Dhamma of John Cage

Happy New Year everyone! 2016 was such a wonderful year for me with so many projects. I’m very grateful to all of you who supported me whether by helping to fund my Hatchfund for EchoZoo and my residency at Ayatana and my field recording trips to the Pacific Northwest, coming to my sleep concerts during my artist residency at <fidget> or with Temple Universities BEEP, coming to see my collaboration with Nora Gibson Contemporary Ballet in Ephemeral, my Fringe Fest collaboration with Fran Markey or maybe enjoying my little musical part of Klip Collective’s Nightscape at Longwood Gardens this fall or perhaps support during my Deep Listening certification studying with the late Pauline Oliveros.

I’ve got some exciting projects this year including several sleep music concerts and recordings, an Echozoo research residency in Brazil, a new ballet with NGCB, new albums coming out on Buddy System and NOREMIXES, and a new education initiate teaching Field Recording and Deep Listening with Dutch artist Sharon Stewart with a pilot program funded by American Composers Forum at Village of the Arts and Humanities this March.

Now on to this month’s projects… First I’m teaching a three part series on John Cage and Buddhism…

The Dhamma of John Cage

A three part series exploring the connection between John Cage and Buddhism with periods of meditation, listening and discussion.
