DiverseWorks and Nameless Sound present "Anthology, Meditations: A Marathon Performance of Pauline Oliveros Scores"

In conjunction with the exhibition SonicWorks, on view at DiverseWorks through March 1, Nameless Sound and DiverseWorks present a marathon of back-to-back performances of scores by Pauline Oliveros, an acclaimed composer, performer, humanitarian and important pioneer in American experimental music.

For more than four decades, Oliveros, a Houston native, has explored sound, forging new ground for herself and others. "Anthology, Meditations" celebrates Oliveros' important role in the founding and mentoring of Nameless Sound as well as her connections to DiverseWorks' history as an important presenter and champion of sonic art in Houston.

"Anthology, Meditations" has an indeterminate ending time, by design, but is estimated to span 5 to 6 hours. Pieces will be performed without pauses or intermissions and audience members are encouraged to come and go freely throughout the day. Prizes will be available to anyone who endures the entire performance.

Performers include Paula Anne Anicete, Abel Cisneros, Denis Cisneros, Chris Cogburn, David Dove, Sandy Ewen, David Feil, Sonia Flores, Juan Garcia, Lucas Gorham, Lisa Harris, Jason Jackson, Rebecca Novak, Ivette Roman-Roberto, Aluna Rubin, Damon Smith, Kurt Stallmann, Jawwaad Taylor, Hsin-Jung Tsai and Ronnie Yates.
