With “tremendous power” (Village Voice), West-Coast-based Pamela Z kicks off closing night of the Festival, presenting a set of her own works for voice and live electronics. Vocalist, composer, and flutist Nathalie Joachim (Eighth Blackbird) makes her RBF debut with an excerpt from her large-scale project Fanm d’Ayiti (Women of Haiti), which explores Haitian song and the role of women’s voices in Haitian culture, telling stories of political exile, cultural affirmation, and independence. Concluding our first-ever Chicago Festival will be Chicago-based composer/performer Jessie Marino (Ensemble Pamplemousse), presenting part of her brand-new Alter Egos Project, which injects recent musical histories with new-wave feminist ideologies via works of experimental music, sound, and visual practice. Beginning with the development of creative alter egos, these fictional entities will materialize through the creation of newly developed works of musical composition, live performance, sculpture and acoustic engineering. These works will then develop a fictional placement within well-documented historical contexts such as 1960’s American Experimentalism, late-90’s post-punk underground and DIY noise performance, and Internet/3D art forms from the mid 2000’s. These moments in history have been selected for their major common feature: a disturbing gender imbalance in the makeup of their most recognized practitioners.

“In equal measures intelligent, playful, ambitious and moving the program…illuminated the shape-shifting power of the human voice.” - Corinna da Fonseca-Wollheim, The New York Times
