Pamela Z will present her work Simultaneous as part of MoMA’s annual Studio Residency program at The Museum of Modern Art in New York, NY

Pamela Z is this year’s artist for MoMA’s annual Studio Residency program. At the Museum, she will continue to develop her recent song cycle Simultaneous in the Kravis Studio. Comprising several short pieces that explore the concept of simultaneity, the work will incorporate voice, ​chamber ensemble (Oboe, English horn, viola, cello, and percussion), gesture control, real-time electronic processing, language, and immersive video projections that react to sound and motion.

The residency will culminate in a public premiere of Simultaneous, a public conversation with the artist, and a glimpse into an in-progress version of the work adapted for installation with new audio recorded in MoMA’s studio.

Simultaneous Performances:
Thu, Aug 3 at 8:00 pm
Sat, Aug 5 at 8:00 pm
Sun, Aug 6 at 3:00 pm – Followed by conversation with Martha Joseph
