    our hair placed side by side juxtaposed to create new images This demarche allows me to see the landscape differently and makes me consider a new problematique of art in nature I sculpted water ice as it can take any form and then return to it s source I placed blocks of ice in the desert and through these lenses of ice I considered the land almost as if I were looking into it s eyes It was vast And with the melting of the ice I became much smaller in the face of this grandeur Look at our eyes they are so small yet they see great things said Jalaladine Rumi It was this thought that occurred to me to my spirit as I watched This is one of the sources for my landscapes landscapes the size of our eyes This land is both large and small we cannot escape it it follows us like our shadow daytime shadows in the landscape are fragments of night As our dusk falls dawn begins on the other side of the earth After arriving at distant horizons and having seen much it is to our own interior landscape to which our vision

    a still projection changes before our eyes into a motion picture as the ice inside of the slide frame begins to melt In another an empty gallery slowly becomes enveloped by a cascade of flowing folds of paper as messages from around the world are transmitted to a fax machine mounted in the rafters After studying art in Algeria Mr Sedjal received his MFA in sculpture from Arizona State University

  • San Diego Union Tribune Review
    Alex Fans of cutting edge music can expect similar sonic adventure and excitement albeit of a markedly different type when the monthly downtown series continues Tuesday night with a performance by Bay Area vocal wizard Pamela Z and erstwhile San Diego bassist and electronics manipulator Lisle Ellis Operatically trained Z uses an array of video footage and high tech devices in her visually striking performances These include a BodySynth a MIDI controlled outfit that enables her to manipulate sound through her onstage movements and gestures By sampling and processing her voice live she becomes a one woman ensemble that sounds both inviting and otherworldly An experimental artist in the best sense Z clearly puts much thought into her work while retaining a welcome sense of playfulness She occupies a middle ground between Laurie Anderson Meredith Monk and Diamanda Galas without sounding like any of them Equally comfortable creating a brave new aural world singing Puccini or reinventing Wild Thing in ways The Troggs never dreamed of Z creates provocative music that invites active listening So at his best does Ellis His latest album last year s superb Sucker Punch Requiem An Homage to Jean Michel Basquiat combines laptop generated experimental

  • Cuny Graduate Center Advocate review of FOCUS!
    the piano and tells the stories relationships and feelings that may be resonating within the piano The performer not only acts out the part of the Steinway but in fact writes his own part Shinners s monologue detailed the often humorous daily trials and tribulations of a Steinway including an affair she once had with a Canadian pianist Glenn Gould who was considerate enough not to stamp all over her gold feet I was surprised to learn that Shinner himself was a pianist his delivery was so good I assumed that he was an acting student One of my favourite works on the program was Paul Chihara s Logs which could be performed by any number of double basses at this performance there were four The work is part of a larger group of pieces dealing with trees including Branches Redwood Driftwood and Forest Music to name a few Logs consists of a main phrase and several contrasting phrases which are continuously repeated and varied by the bassists The double bass is a perfect choice for a piece about logs the instrument after all is made out of wood and is rather large In addition to the traditional means of playing a bass that is by bowing or plucking the strings the bassists played on the instruments themselves treating them almost as very delicate percussion instruments The result was a work of naturalistic beauty that transported me out of the concert hall out of a cold New York in January and into one of California s redwood forests The earliest composer represented at the Focus Festival was Henry Cowell one of America s great modernist composers Cowell gained widespread notoriety in the 1920s for his revolutionary approach to the piano In his many compositions for the instrument Cowell uses a variety of techniques that no one before him had dared to introduce such as using a fist or the entire forearm to play a whole cluster of notes at once or reaching inside the piano to play on the strings themselves These advances in piano composition were important not just because of the unique sound that they imparted to his works but because of the effect they had on later generations of composers In the 1940s John Cage a student of Cowell s began to prepare pianos by placing objects such as screws and erasers on the strings creating a completely different timbre more akin to an Eastern percussion ensemble than a piano Since the time of Cage and Cowell many composers have begun to use extended techniques of all sorts on every instrument including several of the composers featured at the Focus Festival Given this context it was a wonderful treat to hear Euntaek Kim play some of Cowell s piano pieces on January 28 Particularly exciting was his performance of The Harp of Life In Cowell s words According to Irish mythology the god of life created a new living creature with each tone sounded on his great

  • Piedmont Post Review of THE PENDULUM at ROYCE GALLERY
    a curtain to the left side and a platform placed near the curtain on which stands a small table and chair Beginning with only the simplest of images a cloudy smear of light on the screen and back wall Pamela Z seated with a laptop on the table begins an incantatory sentence I saw you and I know that you are Before the sentence is complete and its meaning clear her voice loops back interactively begins to read over itself Slowly through the layered vocal repetitions other phrases emerge Show me yes show me no Over the murky projected images text appears in yellow pendulum n a body so suspended from a fixed point The brass plumb pendulum materializes magnified on the screens where it swing back and forth rewriting and revising its image of itself The pendulum defined a prerecorded video moves us toward other connotations of the swinging object Her face enlarged to fill the screen Pamela Z asks Are you having trouble making a decision Let s toss a coin The coin or rather the ghostly curve of a coin spins slowly across the screen and into the soft grays that are the air surrounding it The movement repeats Its undeniable beauty entrances the viewers we crave its repetition It s tails Is that OK tossing a coin it seems is not a surrender to a seemingly arbitrary fate but rather a means of defining what you want revealing to you that you have already made a decision The performance moves on She moves to the side of the stage to a flight of stairs on which are traced the letters Y and N The portable microphone camera swings back and forth between the two you never say no but you don t mean yes She wheels
