Sounding Images #3: Diamanda Galás – Intravenal Song


A screening with/by Bill Dietz

Wednesday, October 5, 2016 // 7:30pm // ACUD Studio


Undisputed dark queen of vocality, Diamanda Galás is a living legend. Her more than 40 year career spans experimental music, AIDS activism, and tangential forays into something like popular culture. From her music videos (including MTV’s “most offensive video of 1988”), excepts from her 1993 VHS Judgement Day, music from soundtracks (e.g. Oliver Stone’s Natural Born Killers) and appearances in films (Rosa von Praunheim’s 1990 Positive), through various live recordings, and finally her 1998 book The Shit of God, the evening traces Galás’ conception of “voice as composition.”


Bill Dietz is a composer and writer, as well as co-chair of the Music/Sound Department in the Bard MFA, and Guest Professor of Sound at the Academy of Media Arts (Cologne). He was born in Bisbee, Arizona, and has lived in Berlin since 2003.  Homepage
