Pamela Z – Seminar in Composition
January 24 @ 4:00 pm - 6:15 pm | Stevenson Fireside Lounge
Please join us on Monday, January 24, at 4:00 PM, for our keynote event in Pamela Z’s 2022 UC Santa Cruz residency, jointly funded by the University Library, the Humanities Institute, and the Institute for Arts and Sciences’ Surge: Afrofuturism Festival. Pamela Z’s residency begins with her January 24 seminar on composition, and culminates with a May 14 concert undertaken in collaboration with the Institute of Arts and Sciences, and UC Santa Cruz graduate students.
The January lecture-seminar, delivered remotely via Zoom, will address a range of issues arising in her approach to composition, including but not limited to interactions of fixed media and ‘real-time’ elements in performance, and approaches to composition with voice and text. The lecture portion will be followed by presentations by UC Santa Cruz composers Alexander Wand and Seth Glickman, on their new works-in-progress, and finally by discussion and dialogue among the participants.
