Pauline Gloss

Sound Art Faculty

Pauline Gloss is a writer and literary sound-artist based in Los Angeles working in dialogue with the Text-Sound tradition. Her language-sound work attempts to dramatize and expand language in its timbral, rhythmic, textural, and meaning-making dimensions. Her current body of work is concerned with using highly reduced language to develop larger emotional and conceptual architectures whose stability is always in question.

Pauline runs Spoken Records, a label specializing in the release of work in the Text-Sound tradition. Her most recent recording project, "Greetings from Here: Audio Postcards in Transition,” an improvised, epistolary record, has been written about favorably in art and music publications. She has performed and shown solo work in Los Angeles, London, and New York.
