A Place to Listen is an experimental music series in Victoria, British Columbia. We foster a practice of mindful, attentive listening through the presentation of experimental and boundary-challenging music.
A Place to Listen is about creating a space. A quiet space where, for an hour or two, one can be deeply attuned to something. Nothing spectacular or sensational. Sometimes only tones and silence. In our current culture of hyper-stimulation and saturation—which attempts to colonize our imaginations and demands that we not look too closely or feel too deeply—this kind of musical practice is essential. It feeds a part of us that, more and more, we are learning to neglect. The part that needs quiet.
Rather than a concert series, this is a listening series.
Thanks for listening.
