Seventh Quiet Night In


Friends Meeting House, Wynards Lane, Magdalen Street, Exeter EX2 4HU

Friday 14th July, 7.30pm

This Quiet Night In is a departure from our usual concert presentation: we invite you to perform with us.

We’ll be playing five text scores by Pauline Oliveros, the musical visionary and pioneer of deep, active listening (1932 – 2016). The scores prompt us to create music without learning or reading notes, in a free way of music making that is reliant on ways of listening and responding.

The five scores:

From unknown silences

One sound once

Rock piece


Sound piece

Tickets are free, but please book via Eventbrite:

We’ll then send you the text scores so you can have a think about them before the performance. You’ll need to decide on some sound-making objects and/or instruments to bring.

If you want to come but you’d like help with preparing we’d be very happy to answer questions or offer guidance.
