Jazz Lecture Series: Susan Pascal

Thursday, May 18, 2023

Developed in the 1920s and '30s, the vibraphone or vibes is arranged like a piano. Made out of metal alloy bars, the instrument has a vibrato mechanism and a piano-like damper pedal. Playing with two wooden mallets in each hand - a technique picked up from Gary Burton, whom Susan Pascal considers one of her biggest influences - Pascal is able to achieve a rapid, intricate and surprisingly melodic sound, working the three-octave range of the instrument. 

Pascal has played four tours of Singapore and concerts across the United States. Pascal can be heard on film soundtracks including The Blind Side and Office Space, and on the Macklemore & Ryan Lewis release, Growing Up.
