We're wrapping up an incredible year at ISSUE Project Room by archiving a bunch of previously unreleased recordings of our favorite performances from the past year. Aside from two galas; four Artists-in-Residence; eight Emerging Artists Commissions; an amazing art auction featuring performances by Kim Gordon, Tony Conrad and John Miller; ongoing programs like Darmstadt Institute and Essential Repertoire; the landmark Minor Musics: Japan series; and the upcoming world premiere of Vidas Perfectas, a Spanish-language version of Robert Ashley's Perfect Lives (starting tonight through Saturday, 12/17; get tix here!); we've also presented dozens of performances of groundbreaking works by some of the most innovative composers and artists working today.
Let's kick things off with these recordings of Acid Birds and the Charles Gayle Trio playing some killer free jazz (one of the psychedelic variety, one disjunctive and spiritual) at ISSUE back in February, and if you like what you hear, consider becoming an ISSUE Project Room Member and receive a signed copy of a limited Acid Birds LP. Stay posted in the following weeks to find out what else has been going on all year long. Cheers, and happy holidays!
