Live Stage: Pamela Z at The Kitchen [us NYC]

pamelaz_fall2010_large.jpgPamela Z: Baggage Allowance :: September 16-18, 2010; 8:00 pm :: The Kitchen, 512 West 19th Street, New York, NY.

San Francisco-based artist Pamela Z presents her latest solo performance for voice, electronics, and interactive video that considers “baggage” in all its literal and metaphorical permutations. She is best-known for her signature style of experimental performance works that meld sampling technologies and live electronic processing with operatic bel canto and extended vocal techniques.

Drawing from her own extensive traveling as well as other travelers’ experiences, this new work contends with the ball-and-chain-ness of dragging one’s belongings all over the world. Through manipulation of layers of visual and sonic material through various custom controls and devices live on stage, Baggage Allowance scans and inventories the objects (and memories) we all cart around with us.

sleepwalk.jpgSleepWalks Performance (Sleepover, please bring bedding) :: June 5, 9:00 pm – June 6, 9:00 am :: Diapason Gallery, 882 Third Avenue, 10th Fl., New York City :: RSVP: lemurz66 [at]

An overnight, live electronic music performance by Lee Pembleton and Andrea Williams. Culling sounds from their audio files of field recordings, live samples of the room resonance, and various electronically processed acoustic instruments, they create an extended musical composition for the entirety of a night for an audience that sleeps in the performance space. Pembleton and Williams intend to create soundwalks for dreamers. SleepWalks first premiered as a shorter ‘catnap’ at Issue Project Room in NYC in early 2009 and since then as dream-filled overnight performances in the San Francisco Bay Area, including at Mills College as part of The Deep Listening Institute’s Dream Festival. A listening sample can be found here (link on right side of page). Continue reading
