On Sunday, May 17th 2009, at 8pm the ROOM chamber series continues with a shared evening of flautists who will play with and without electronics, separately, together, and with host Pamela Z (on voice and electronics.) New York flautist Jane Rigler known for her innovations in new flute performance techniques and unique musical vocabulary, will perform a new work for flutes, electronics, and interactive video, and the Bay Area?s flautist/performance artist Polly Moller who composes and improvises on flute and bass flute will premiere her new piece, Three of Swords (the score for which will be available for purchase at the concert). Each will play solo and Pamela Z will join them for duos and an ensemble finale. Plus Pamela Z will perform a short solo excerpt from her work-in-progress Baggage Allowance. Part of the thrust of this series is to present artists with adventurous and diverse approaches (who, prior to this, may or may not have been fully familiar with each other?s work) together in intimate evenings full of variety and surprises.

Artist Bios :
Jane Rigler is known for her innovations in new flute performance, techniques and unique musical vocabulary. She is a featured performer in contemporary music festivals throughout the U.S. and Europe as a soloist as well as within chamber ensembles (Ensemble Plural, Either/Or, Ne(x)tworks, Ensemble Sospeso, Anthony Braxton 12tet, etc.). Besides premiering works written especially for her, Jane?s compositions cover simple solo acoustic pieces inspired by language to complex interactive electronic works that pay homage to painting, poetry and dance. After receiving a B.M. (Northwestern University) and then pursuing flute studies in various parts of Europe and North America, she gained her M.A. and Ph.D. (UC San Diego) completing The Vocalization of the Flute, a book demonstrating both new and ancient methods of singing-while-playing the flute. Her expertise has led to performances in contemporary operas, experimental theater and dance events as well as other interactive electronic festivals. Her compositions are sought after by other flutists and have been performed in South Korea, Australia, France, Spain, and in concert halls and universities throughout the U.S. After living in Spain for 9 years, Jane resides in Brooklyn, NY. http://www.janerigler.com
Polly Moller improvises on the flute and bass flute, composes, writes text, creates performance art, and heads up a cast of characters called Reconnaissance Fly. She is also a member of the Outsound Presents Board of Directors and curates the Full Moon Series at San Francisco's Luggage Store Gallery. Polly Moller has been awarded grants by the American Composers Forum and the National Foundation for Advancement in the Arts. Her recordings have been released on Albany Records, Pax Recordings, Mindspore Records, and Silver Wheel Music; and her flute quartet, "Remove Before Flight", is available from ALRY Publications. http://www.silverwheel.com
Pamela Z is a San Francisco-based composer/performer and audio artist who works primarily with voice, live electronic processing, and sampling technology. Processing her live voice through "MAX MSP" software on a MacBook Pro, she creates solo works that combine operatic bel canto and experimental extended vocal techniques with found objects, spoken word, and sampled concrete sounds. Her performances range in scale from small concerts in galleries to large-scale multi-media works in flexible black-box venues and proscenium halls. In addition to her performance work, she has a growing body of inter-media works including multi-channel sound and video installations, and she has composed commissioned works for chamber ensembles including the string quartet "Ethel", the Bang On A Can All-stars, the Left Coast Chamber Ensemble, Empyrean Ensemble, the California E.A.R. Unit, and the St. Luke?s Chamber Orchestra. She is the recipient of numerous awards incuding the Guggenheim Fellowship, the Alpert Award in the Arts, The ASCAP Music Award, and the NEA Japan/US Friendship Fellowship. She holds a music degree from the University of Colorado at Boulder. Pamela Z has been curating, producing, and hosting the ROOM chamber series at Royce Gallery since 2006. http://www.pamelaz.com
