“Crossing Disciplines”
The Seminar is followed by a Masterclass and Performance in the Music Studio

Pamela Z will discuss her working process, the blurring of lines across 
disciplines, and the wide range of ideas and techniques that go into forming 
and mounting the performance work. And she will address how how rapid changes 
in available technology have effected the art. She plans to show video and 
audio documentation of many works, and in the master-class do a certain amount 
of live performance and demonstration of her tools and process.  She also will 
conduct some participatory activity involving voice and sound.

Pamela Z is a composer/performer and media artist who makes solo works 
combining a wide range of vocal techniques with electronic processing, samples, 
gesture activated MIDI controllers, and video. She has toured extensively 
throughout the US, Europe, and Japan. Her work has been presented at venues and 
exhibitions including Bang on a Can (NY), the Japan Interlink Festival, Other 
Minds (SF), the Venice Biennale, and the Dakar Biennale. She's created 
installation works and has composed scores for dance, film, and new music 
chamber ensembles. Her numerous awards include a Guggenheim Fellowship, the 
Creative Capital Fund, the CalArts Alpert Award, The MAP Fund, the ASCAP Award, 
an Ars Electronica honorable mention, the NEA/JUSFC Fellowship, and a Djerrassi 
Resident Artist Program residency. www.pamelaz.com
