This Sonic Meditation was written in the first months of the 2020 global pandemic. Pollution levels everywhere dropped dramatically. The petroluem-dominated soundscapes of daily life emptied of astonishing amounts of human noise intrusion. COVID-19 is here because of climate breakdown. Sonic Meditations are written or spoken instructions that anyone can do to explore listening. They were developed by musician and composer, Pauline Oliveros, as an essential tool of the practice of Deep Listening she initiated. Sonic Meditations give attention towards various aspects of how listening and perceiving in a concentrated manner can reveal many things that are present, but that you do not regularly engage.
