Telematic Concert was recorded for Oliveros’ Deep Listening Institute’s Dream Festival during October 2009, with Oliveros performing live from Kingston, New York, while Courtis joined digitally from Buenos Aires.
The performance fused Oliveros’ accordion-produced drone and “expanded instrument system” with the sounds of Courtis’ unstringed guitar feedback and object processing.
Listen to an extract below:
Telematic Concert marks both the performance’s first release, as well as the first instalment in Spleencoffin’s new Vault Series, which will focus on unreleased recordings from artists’ archives.
The album follows the reissue of Oliveros, Stuart Dempster, and Panaiotis’ foundational 1989 album Deep Listening for the first time in 2019.
