Tate Britain Workshop

Deep Listening Sunday Mornings

A Common Ground

Start your Sunday by deeply listening to your body and the world that surrounds you

Pauline Oliveros, composer, describes Deep Listening as ‘listening in every possible way, to everything possible to hear, no matter what one is doing.’ Join us for this collective exploration of the soundscape of A Common Ground, Tate Britain’s garden commission.

Each two hour session will provide an introduction to the practice of Deep Listening, exploring the difference between the involuntary nature of hearing and the selective nature of listening, through listening meditations, breathwork and gentle movement exercises drawn from Tai Chi.

Learn how to heighten your awareness of the sonic environment, both external and internal, in this workshop which promotes experimentation, improvisation, collaboration, playfulness and other creative skills vital to personal and community growth. Plus, it is a lot of fun.
