Pamela Z on her sound work ‘Strange’ (7’30”, in loop mode):
‘Strange’ – originally commissioned by Mary Armentrout Dance Theater – is a stereo sound work that involves a dense collage of time-expanded and time-compressed speech sounds.
Pamela Z composed ‘Strange’ as part of the score for ‘Reveries and Elegies’, Mary Armentrout’s site specific performance project – a shifting, wandering, accumulating, de- accumulating installation that explores change, loss, and dislocation. The track is composed entirely of samples of Armentrout’s speaking voice, which Z has layered, stretched, squeezed, and dissected.
‘Strange’ is the third work by Pamela Z presented at the Sound Gallery ‘ohrenhoch’ in Berlin. In October/November 2023 ohrenhoch presented her work ‘Lift’, in 2012 her work ‘A Piece of Pi’(world premiere).
Pamela Z performs her solo works for voice and an array of electronics, and contributes another World Premiere to the program, Raise, a stirring tribute to the people who raised us, written for ‘cellist Nick Photinos (founding member of 8th Blackbird) and three additional cellists, plus voice samples and multi-media.
