Eighty Five Audible Moments is dedicated to Pauline Oliveros. it was intended to be part of a surprise event in celebration of her 85 birthday. unfortunately, she surprised us instead. RIP! Pauline…

PS. in this piece, the notion of the sound melody as an exploration of memory takes on (all of a sudden) a new, deeper meaning
