Episode 36: CREATIVE LISTENING - with C. Lavender

C. Lavender is a sound artist, sound healing practitioner, educator, and author of Transcendent Waves: How Listening Shapes Our Creative Lives. She has worked with labels including Editions Mego, RVNG, Longform Editions, and most recently iDEAL, who have just released Rupture In The Eternal Realm, a sonic reinterpretation of a Tibetan Buddhist meditation practice. In this episode of the Sound Propositions podcast, we discuss the influence of Pauline Oliveros, how working as an educator led to writing Transcendent Waves, and the evolution of the relationship between her practice as a sound artist and sound healer.
