Idols of the Children D. Raylene Campbell

Idols of the Children is the first of a series of compositions intended for use in a multi-media performance based on the theme of ‘catharsis’ (i.e. emotional), which the composer intends to tour in year 2002/2003. The score upon which the composition is based was conceived in a dream experienced in November 2000. This dream was a powerful and lucid dream involving the composer and other Deep Listeners including Pauline Oliveros. In August 2000 the composer attended the advanced Deep Listening Retreat in New Mexico where some field recordings were made. The composer merged these field recordings with the score and theme/feelings experienced in the dream. The composer incorporates an understanding of Deep Listening as developed and taught by Pauline Oliveros with technical and creative skills in the use of computer interactive/stand alone music technology and music improvisation.
