LIVE STREAM – Register here for an after-concert panel with Pamela Z and the members of the fff ensemble, joined by special guests Margaret Schedel and Jocelyn Ho. The discussion will begin at 6:00 PM (PDT) and will focus on performance with technology from a feminist perspective, including the Women’s Labor project.
Pamela Z is a composer/performer and media artist making works for voice, electronic processing, samples, gesture activated MIDI controllers, and video. She has toured throughout the US, Europe, and Japan. Her work has been presented at venues and exhibitions including Bang on a Can (NY), the Japan Interlink Festival, Other Minds (SF), the Venice Biennale, and the Dakar Biennale. She has composed scores for dance, film, and chamber ensembles (including Kronos Quartet and Eighth Blackbird). Her awards include the Rome Prize, United States Artists, the Guggenheim, Doris Duke Artist Impact Award, Robert Rauschenberg Foundation, and the Herb Alpert Award.
The fff ensemble is an interdisciplinary feminist improv collective dedicated to supporting collaboration in the Bay Area and beyond.
Women’s Labor is a feminist project by Jocelyn Ho with Margaret Schedel and Matthew Blessing that repurposes old domestic tools to become new musical instruments. Using embedded technologies, these domestic-tool-turned instruments are explored in public installations, community workshops, commissioned new compositions, and concert performance. Traditionally relegated to the private sphere, Women’s Labor interrogates domesticity through public engagement and performative spectacle.
