The International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE) celebrates pioneering composer Pauline Oliveros in a program spanning more than 50 years of sonic innovation. From the tiniest microsounds of found objects in Applebox Double (1965) to the acoustic phenomena of Heart of Tones (1999) that will fill Hearst Plaza, this performance invites audience members to practice Oliveros’s philosophy of deep listening and discover new possibilities of musical expression. Oliveros, who passed away in 2016, was a frequent guest at Lincoln Center Out of Doors for decades, as well as one of ICE’s most influential collaborators.

“Hear with your ears, listen with your heart.”
– Pauline Oliveros
“One of the most accomplished and adventurous groups in new music.”
– New York Times on ICE
