Information:

Strange Brew presents an interactive evening of Deep Listening with Dan Johnson & Tina Hitchens.

"Listening to space changes space, and changing space changes listening" - Pauline Oliveros

Anyone can practice Deep Listening. Deep Listening is an evolving, meditative practice that aims to foster personal and collective well-being through the exploration of heightened states of awareness, the receiving of sound, and the 'lifting off' of judgement.

Dan is a musician and facilitator specialising in percussion, improvisation, listening, and creativity. As well as being a member of EP/64 and DJxKWF, Dan actively performs solo under his own name. Tina is an improviser, composer and sound artist who plays with a number of groups -including Viridian, Harpoon, and Halftone - and does solo work. She’s interested in free improvisation, in the edges of sounds, and in how we experience ourselves with others through music. Dan & Tina started playing as a percussion and flute duo during the first UK lockdown in 2020, when they began exploring the acoustic possibilities of outside spaces across the empty city of Bristol. Their performances are improvised responses to each other and the environment around them.

They play at the extremes of texture and rhythm; whether entirely acoustically or combining unorthodox mic techniques with multiple FX pedals, the intention is to push the boundaries of their instruments and audiences.

Schedule (7-10pm):

7pm

A brief introduction to Deep Listening Practices and the concepts of focal and global listening,

7.30pm

A live acoustic performance by Tina & Dan - a space to 'tune in' for all those present.

8pm

A series of Deep Listening activities led by Tina & Dan, which audience members are invited to participate in (if you would prefer not to, just enjoy the sounds). The activities require no musical training or advance preparation, and will be entirely acoustic. A number of instruments will be provided, and people are welcome to bring their own acoustic instruments / objects - anything that makes a sound!

Tina & Dan will lead a brief reflection on the experience following each activity.

9pm

Tina & Dan will close the evening with an improvised, amplified performance providing a further Deep Listening experience.
