The ROOM Series is an avant chamber music series presented by Pamela Z Arts at Royce Gallery, an intimate performance gallery in San Francisco's North East Mission Industrial Zone (NEMIZ). Composer/performer Pamela Z hosts evenings featuring a variety of virtuosic, solo artists and chamber groups playing experimental music.

The series often features instrumentation-themed evenings that strive to subvert the concept by combining artists with wildly varying approaches, aesthetics, and techniques on the instrument in question. A typical ROOM Series concert features 2-4 experimental artists giving solo performances, interspersed with some duos with others on the program and finishing with an improvised (or scored) tutti finale.
