Critical Forum with Wizard Apprentice
December 12, 2019, 8:30 pm11:00 pm
Wizard Apprentice’s work is known for its candor and universal accessibility. Following a week of Wizard Apprentice’s rehearsals at PAM, join us for an informal performance followed by a Critical Forum—PAM’s equivalent of artistic critique, anchored in honest dialogue and thoughtful conversation.
Wizard Apprentice (pronouns: she and/or they) is a music producer, live performer, and video artist. As a highly sensitive introvert, her multimedia projects are strategies for managing an overwhelming world. Their music is a combination of lyrical precision, minimalistic composition, and technically-amateurish charm. They create media that takes advantage of accessible, user-friendly technology; allowing them to skip time consuming learning curves and get straight to focusing on inventing personalized yet highly relatable language for deeply subtle and internal experiences. She’s not a gear-head, rather, a digital folk artist who vividly and simplistically expresses her inner world using resourcefulness and honesty. Her video work incorporates green screen graphics, digital puppetry, and minimalistic compositing to produce imagery that’s cerebral, campy, and hypnotic. She combines song and video to create multimedia live performances that explore intimate emotional themes ranging from the challenges/triumphs of being an empath to overstimulation in the Internet Age.
