Sanctuary was recorded in the beautiful acoustics of the Trinity United Methodist Church in Kingston, New York. The worksplay off the acoustics and feeling of the church, as the performers move about to actually activate the many possibleresonances of the space. In addition, the Deep Listening Band also utilizes their newly developed Expanded InstrumentSystem — a digital electronic processing environment that allows the musicians full control over many spatial andacoustical parameters.

The core Deep Listening Band: Pauline Oliveros (just-tuned accordion), Stuart Dempster (trombones, didjeridu) andDavid Gamper (pipe organ, flutes) are augmented here by a “Deep Listening Big Band” including new music vocalists TomBuckner and Julie Lyon Balliet, Joe McPhee on bass-clarinet & pocket trumpet, and percussionists Nego Gato and WomenWho Drum.

Together the performers will transport you into mysterious worlds inhabited by exotic sounds, instruments and vocals,culminating in the joyously
percussive Non-Stop Flight.
