at Rensselaer students and faculty make powerful connections Donna Li 15 who came to Rensselaer from Hong Kong to study civil engineering took several courses in Deep Listening and felt its effect profoundly. I heard from peers that it was really interesting she says and its completely different from what I usually do which is all about math and numbers and logical thinking. Deep Listening helps heighten my awareness at all times. Especially during science and engineering projects it inspires me to approach questions in different creative ways and therefore improves my problem-solving skills. For Everyone Anywhere Pauline Oliveros professor of practice is an internationally acclaimed composer and performer. Over 40 years ago she developed a music theory called Deep Listening which she has described as listening with your whole body. Deep Listening focuses conscious attention on environmental and musical sound and subscribes to the belief that music should be for everyone anywhere. In 2014 Rensselaer established the Center for Deep Listening to educate people within and outside the Rensselaer community about the practice of Deep Listening and the ways it can be harnessed to enhance creativity and understanding. Deep Listeningcan connect the varying disciplines within the humanities says Tomie Hahn director of the center. Students who have already taken Paulines courses in Deep Listening have discovered that the practice offers a different perspective and can unlock new ways of approaching problem-solving in fields like science and engineering Hahn says. With the establishment of the Center for Deep Listening we hope to make this ear-opening experience available to more Rensselaer students. 4 Deep listening inspires me to approach questions in different creative ways and therefore improves my problem-solving skills. faculty students 19
