pam.jpgPAMELA Z (Solo works for voice and electronics;performance: a set of new and existing works for voice, samples, and live processing) :: February 1, 2009; 8:00pm :: The Issue Project Room, 232 3rd Street, 3rd Floor, Brooklyn.

PAMELA Z Is a composer/performer and audio artist who works with voice, live electronic processing and sampling technology. Processing her voice through “MAX MSP” software on a PowerBook, she creates performance works combining bel canto and experimental extended vocal techniques with found objects, text, and sampled concrète sounds. Sounds are often triggered via custom MIDI controllers such as the BodySynth and the Light SensePod which allow her to manipulate sound with physical gestures. Her performances range in scale from concerts in galleries to large-scale multi-media works in flexible black-box venues and proscenium halls. In addition to her performance work, she has a growing body of inter-media works including multi-channel sound and video installations.

Pamela Z has toured extensively throughout the United States, Europe, and Japan. She has performed in numerous festivals including: Bang on a Can at Lincoln Center NY; Interlink Festival Japan; SoundCulture New Zealand; Other Minds San Francisco; and Pina Bausch Tanztheater’s 25 Jahre Fest Wuppertal, Germany. She has created original scores for choreographers and film/video artists. Her large-scale, multi-media performance works, Parts of Speech, Gaijin and Voci, have been presented at the Kitchen (NY), Theater Artaud and ODC Theater (SF), the Museum of Contemporary Art Theatre Chicago, and at theaters in Washington D.C. and Budapest Hungary. Her one-act opera Wunderkabinet (co-composed with Matthew Brubeck) premiered at The LAB Gallery (SF), and was presented at REDCAT (LA) and Open Ears Festival Canada. Her new inter-media work The Pendulum is scheduled for a San Francisco Premiere in 2008. She has had audio works included in exhibitions at the Whitney Museum (NY), the Erzbischöfliches Diözesanmuseum (Cologne), the Tang Museum (Saratoga Springs NY), the Dakar Biennale (Sénégal), and the Hellenic Museum (Chicago). Her work has also been presented at the San Jose Museum of Art, El Museo del Barrio (NY), and La Biennale di Venezia (Italy).

Ms. Z has been commissioned by new music chamber ensembles including the Bang On A Can Allstars; Ethel, the California E.A.R. Unit; and the Left Coast Chamber Ensemble. She has collaborated with a wide range of composer/performers, media artists, and choreographers including Miya Masaoka, Joan Jeanrenaud, Jeanne Finley + John Muse, and Shinichi Momo Koga. She has participated New Music Theatre’s John Cage festivals and has performed with The San Francisco Contemporary Music Players. Her numerous awards include the Guggenheim Fellowship, the CalArts Alpert Award in the Arts; the Creative Capital Fund; the ASCAP Music Award; the NEA Japan/US Friendship Commission Fellowship, and a PrixArs Electronica honorable mention. She holds a music degree from the University of Colorado, Boulder. http://www.pamelaz.com
