Simultaneous is a sound work exploring many facets of the concepts of simultaneity and synchronicity. The piece is composed of speech fragments taken from recorded interviews and woven together with my own vocalizations and some found sounds. It was developed, in large part, during my fellowship at the American Academy in Rome. This version is a purely sonic iteration of a larger set of works that also includes a multi-channel sound installation (American Academy in Rome, Spring 2020) and, ultimately, an intermedia performance work (MoMA, New York, 2023). — Pamela Z
