Pamela Z at Le Laboratoire Cambridge

  • Le Laboratoire Cambridge 650 West Kendall Street Cambridge, MA, 02142 United States (map)

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, and sampled concrète sounds. She uses MAX MSP and Isadora software on a MacBook Pro along with custom MIDI controllers that allow her to manipulate sound and image with physical gestures. Her performances range in scale from small concerts in galleries to large-scale multi-media works in theaters and concert halls. In addition to her performance work, she has a growing body of inter-media gallery works including multi-channel sound and video installations.

This residency is presented by the MIT Center for Art, Science & Technology (CAST) as part of the 2015-16 MIT Sounding Series.
