Lauri des Marais Biography
Her compositions are primarily synthesized streams between shape, mood, and pattern-texture construction; this she refers to as Classical Technology, which creates Stories in Sound. Des Marais began playing piano in 1994. For live performance, she developed a form of movement she calls Movement So Still With Sound, which incorporates themes of traditional eastern movement, to translate the often subtle dimensional qualities of her music. She has studied the practice of Deep Listening (TM) with Pauline Oliveros, Composer. Her repertoire includes a performance with Pauline Oliveros at Plan B Evolving Arts, in celebration of Deep Listening, and at the 1999 premier of the Big Sur Experimental Music Festival, hosted by the Henry Miller Library. Currently she is collaborating with Richard Pinhas. Her work can be found at the Oberlin Conservatory of Music library, with special thanks to Pauline Oliveros.
