murmur exists somewhere in between a text score and a protocol (a record of scientific experimental observations). It gives some simple instructions for listening towards your inner world of sound, and some suggestions as to how you can ‘record’ this elusive inner listening experience.
Sound artist and composer Pauline Oliveros argued that listening is a skill, that you develop with practice, over time. This piece leans into that, hinting at the fact that you may not think you can hear inner sounds, but in allowing time for them, perhaps they will come to the surface.
The composition can be listened to as part of the exercise, or as a separate piece.
Please use headphones.
