Composer and teaching artist Michael Reiley McDermott has created music for video, dance, theater, concerts, gallery installations, smartphones, multi-speaker arrays, kinetic sculptures, wishing wells, and sleeping/dreaming across the spectrum of listening consciousness. His practice explores the relationship between present moment awareness, deep time and humanity’s personal connection through listening.
Much of his work integrates a daily practice of meditation, Deep Listening and textured sound worlds through a process he calls “sonic photography”. This process involves site-specific recordings of physical spaces re-imagined using photographic development and collage techniques. His aim is to reframe the everyday world as both a grand statement that stretches out in both directions of time and as an ephemeral instant of precious connection. In 2016 he completed a certification program in Deep Listening studying with Deep Listening pioneer Pauline Oliveros.
