The Contemporary Voices and Visions Series at Hamilton will present Pamela Z in Metal/Vox/Water, a solo multi-media performance for voice, electronics and video on Saturday, Oct. 24, at 8 p.m. in Wellin Hall in the Schambach Center for Music and the Performing Arts. 

Pamela Z is a composer/performer who makes solo works combining a wide range of vocal techniques with electronic processing, samples and gesture-activated MIDI controllers. Metal/Vox/Water is an evening of her solo works for voice, electronics and video. She digitally processes her voice in real time to create lush layers of sound that are at times frenetic and rhythmic and at times ambient, intense and hypnotic. 

The evening takes its title from a segment in which she performs a “trio” with amplified strips of metal hung in the space and a video that samples metal, water and voice. In another segment, she uses the sound of her live voice to control dark, rich video imagery projected behind her.

The segments in Metal/Vox/Water are drawn from excerpts of her acclaimed large-scale multi-media performance works along with short concert works that have been her signature throughout her career as a composer/performer. 

Pamela Z has toured extensively throughout the U.S., Europe, and Japan. She has created installation works and has composed scores for dance, film, and new music chamber ensembles. Her awards include a Guggenheim Fellowship, the Creative Capital Fund, the CalArts Alpert Award, the ASCAP Award, and the NEA/JUSFC Fellowship.

Tickets for this event are $15 for adults, $10 for senior citizens and $5 for students. All seating is general admission. For more information or tickets call the box office at (315) 859-4331 or visit www.hamiltonpa.org
