There are so many gems buried in Pauline Oliveros ' past that the early electronic pieces reissued in the early s have only scratched the surface. First released on cassette in the late '80s, Tara's Room offers a glimpse at the visionary woman's contemplative side -- the subtitle "Two Meditations on Transition and Change" is to be taken at face value. The accordion notes shimmer and flap lightly against each other when played back on loudspeakers. The drone is Love And Peace - Quincy Jones - Walking In Space set into motion and passes through the listener, carrying part of him or her along with it.
The electronic effects are slightly more intrusive than in her subsequent works, but they add food for thought. The piece consists of multi-tracked voice, wooden flute, and percussion. Flute, drum, and crotales provide the sparse elements used in the first minutes. Gradually, the voice of Oliveros repeating a mantra over and over appears and moves up front, joined in her psalmody by what sounds like dozens of other Paulinesforming a whole community.
