PAMELA Z

Pamela Z is a composer/performer and media artist who works primarily with voice, live electronic processing, sampled sound, and video. A pioneer of live digital looping techniques, she processes her voice in real time to create dense, complex sonic layers. Her solo works combine experimental extended vocal techniques, operatic bel canto, found objects, text, digital processing, and wireless MIDI controllers that allow her to manipulate sound with physical gestures. In addition to her solo work, she has been commissioned to compose scores for dance, theatre, film, and chamber ensembles including Kronos Quartet, Eighth Blackbird, the Bang on a Can All Stars, Ethel, and San Francisco Contemporary Music Players. Her interdisciplinary performance works have been presented at venues including The Kitchen (NY), Yerba Buena Center for the Arts (SF), REDCAT (LA), and MCA (Chicago), and her installations have been presented at such exhibition spaces as the Whitney (NY), the Diözesanmuseum (Cologne), and the Krannert (IL). Pamela Z has toured extensively throughout the US, Europe, and Japan. She has performed in numerous festivals including Bang on a Can (New York), Interlink (Japan), Other Minds (San Francisco), La Biennale di Venezia (Italy), Dak’Art (Sénégal) and Pina Bausch Tanztheater Festival (Wuppertal, Germany). She’s a recipient of numerous awards including the Rome Prize, United States Artists, a Robert Rauschenberg Foundation residency, the Guggenheim, the Doris Duke Artist Impact Award, Herb Alpert Award, an Ars Electronica honorable mention, and the NEA Japan/US Friendship Commission Fellowship. She holds a music degree from the University of Colorado, Boulder. www.pamelaz.com

PROGRAM:
Set 1

Erin Rogers, saxophone

Selections from 2000 Miles by Erin Rogers

Fresh off the release of her second solo album from Relative Pitch Records, saxophonist Erin Rogers opens with a 20-min set, diving deep into the sonic underbelly of the instrument, uncovering a radiant world of curiosity and imagination. From human fragility to noisy virtuosity, Rogers forges an alternate voice for the saxophone, percussively blending tone with mechanism and melody with vocalization, gutturals and breath. Rogers will perform works from her recent solo release, 2000 Miles.

Set 2

Basket Case by Erin Rogers

During a recent Popebama road trip, it became apparent through the constant dashboard drumming, that Dennis Sullivan knew the drum solos/fills to nearly every 90’s hit that landed on our randomized playlist. The drum fills in Green Day’s Basket Case (Dookie, 1994) are rhythmically simple, yet played at top speed present such a perfectly crisp noise, that the song deserves a 30-year anniversary tribute. Paired with 0-coast semi-mod desktop synth, FX pedals, a too-hot mic, and a catalog of soprano multiphonics, Basket Case attempts to embody its next-generation self.
