Combining a flair for theatre, circus and extreme vocal performance, Stephanie Pan is one of the most colourful and compelling characters in The Hague’s glorious gathering of cross-disciplinary artists. Members of Ensemble Klang bolster her live set-up for her album launch at Het Paard, during a Festival Dag in de Branding dedicated to the human female voice.
Have Robot Dog, Will Travel – A Song Cycle for the Technological Age, is a genre-bending mash up of sound, combining Ms Pan’s unique voice and lush melodies with dirty, gritty beats, noise, delicate drones and fragile landscapes. In between experimental art pop / virtuosic extended voice / noise / participatory performance, the project appropriates digital aesthetics and sensibilities within the irregular and imperfect world of the human voice and analog instruments. Have Robot Dog, Will Travel is an ode to abstraction, to ambiguity, to words unsaid.
