Video installation (18 minutes), 2007
Sonic Gestures is a video installation that premiered in April 2007 at Recombinant Media Labs in San Francisco. Consisting of ten frame-locked channels of HD video composed of fragmented gestural images and 16 channels of audio, Sonic Gestures surrounds the audience with a virtual chorus of chattering, whispering, singing, and ever transforming sonic entities. This piece, which was commissioned and presented by NexMap, was designed as a site-specific piece for the immersive 360º video and sound set-up at RML. For TEKS.Studio the installation is re-configured for six screens.
The installation is part of Pamela Z’s Norwegian mini-tour to Trondheim and Oslo April 2019. During her visit Pamela Z will hold demo talks at NTNU, the Norwegian Academy of Music and UiO as well as live performances both in Trondheim and Oslo.
At NTNU she will be part of the Women Nordic Music Technology – WoNoMute – seminar series, curated by Anna Xambo. Further on you can experience Pamela Z at Dokkhuset (Ny Musikk) April 6 as part of ‘Voices In Between‘, a constellation with improvisors Tone Åse and Sten Sandell.
