Pamela Z Solo Performance during the
Sunday, June 14, 2020, 3pm - 9pm EDT (noon - 6pm PDT)

Pamela Z will give a live solo performance from her live/work studio in San Francisco as part of the Bang on a Can Live Onine Marathon, on Sunday, June 14, 2020, between 3pm and 9pm EDT (12pm and 6pm PDT). Check the Bang On A Can website for the full schedule (coming soon)

Composers Michael Gordon, David Lang and Julia Wolfe created the first BANG ON A CAN Marathon concert in 1987 in order to break down the barriers that separate musical communities. "Imagine Lollapalooza advised by the ghost of John Cage," Vanity Fair wrote. "There are other places to hear new contemporary music, but it is seldom offered with such a potent blend of intensity, authority, and abandon."

We are all waiting for the world to heal, but until it does, we all have to do what we can. We will start by hosting a LIVE Bang on a Can Marathon. Six hours of uncompromisingly adventurous, searching music played by some of the most amazing performers on the planet. Please join us!
– Michael Gordon, David Lang & Julia Wolfe

BREATHING is a movement from Carbon Song Cycle (a inter-media chamber work by composer/performer Pamela Z and visual artist Christina McPhee). The work was originally written for voice & electronics, bassoon, viola, cello, percussion, and tape. This is a solo version performed by the composer (with just voice, processing, and tape), recorded at a 3/13/2014 duo concert with Joan La Barbara as part of the 2014 ROOM Series. Pamela Z is using a gesture controller (designed and built by Donald Swearingen). © 2013 Last Letter Music (ASCAP)
