My gratitude to Pauline Oliveros

I was really happy I got to introduce myself to Pauline this year at the CTM Festival in Berlin. I was sitting at a talk with J-Lin and looked behind me and there was Pauline standing with Ione and their crew. I was happy to meet her and tell her about how I had researched a lot of her work for the Deep Listening section of my Masters' thesis. She had a warm handshake and her creativity in composition has helped me feel more free. I love how free she was and how she never compromised to do her work. She gave great advice to us, that was to do our work. What we are here to do, and more that we don't know about yet.
