A towering figure in the development of experimental and post-war electronic art music, composer Pauline Oliveros explores the origin of sound with neuroscientist Seth Horowitz as part of the 8th annual Brainwave: The Attachment Trap at the Rubin Museum of Art.
The "attachment trap" is a metaphor for a core Buddhist principle: by holding tightly to external sources of happiness, we prevent ourselves from being truly free. This "trap" is the subject of this year's series of on-stage conversations, films and experiences.
