Pamela Z – Concert and Panel Discussion
May 14 @ 7:00 pm - 8:45 pm | Rio Theater
Pamela Z is a composer, technologist, mixed-media and performance artist specializing in real-time synthesis, voice and vocality, and the framing of found objects and found texts as opportunities for unexpectedly visceral engagements— engagements with the interiorities and exteriorities of our identities and communities. She will complete a two-part residency at UC Santa Cruz, engaging with artists, and then in public dialogue with our music- and media-curious communities on the future of performance and multi-modal creativity.
Media and Society is a series of lectures and public conversations on the role of media, journalism, popular culture narrative, and media representation, in the deployment of power in contemporary society.
Each series lasts a full academic year, but the fall quarter of the series is also a component of Kresge 1: Power and Representation, the core course at Kresge College. The series as a whole uniquely serves the UC Santa Cruz community in a vital function of the liberal arts: to cultivate dialogue in the context of public dialogue, and to guard our freedoms in expressing and debating that knowledge.
