Some questions just don't have a strict and unique answer.
We asked Pamela Z some of those questions; she's an artist, a performer, a composer.
We asked what sound art is to her but we did also asked her to introduce her work.
This short interview is edited with excerpts from Pamela Z's work, studio recordings, performances and some sounds stolen from her last Italian performance in the show Hold it down by the Vijay Iyer and Mike Ladd Ensemble (the ensemble she's part of).
Sound excerpts from: Badagada, Bone Music and The Muni Section.
Pamela Z is a composer/performer and media artist who works with voice, live electronic processing, sampled sounds, and video. A pioneer of live digital looping techniques, she creates solo works integrating experimental extended voice, operatic bel canto, found objects, text, digital processing, and MIDI controllers that allow her to manipulate sound with physical gestures. In addition to her performance work, she has an increasing body of installation work including sound works and objects with embedded interactive sound and video.
