Pamela Z

Blurred Boundaries

Pamela Z will share her work and her process, and will discuss the increasingly blurred lines between disciplines in her practice. Highlighting her use of voice, processing, gesture-based MIDI controllers, and video, her multichannel sound and video installations, and her integration of sampled speech sounds with chamber music composition, she will illustrate the various directions her work has taken over the years.

Sound Art Revisited: Alan Licht in conversation w/ Julie Beth Napolin

The first edition of Sound Art Revisited (published as Sound Art: Beyond Music, Between Categories) served as a groundbreaking work toward defining this emerging field, and this fully updated volume significantly expands the story to include current research since the book's initial release. Viewed through a lens of music and art histories rather than philosophical theory, it covers dozens of artists and works not found in any other book on the subject.
