ISSUE Project Room Presents a Month-Long Institute of DARMSTADT
Tony Oursler's "Synesthesia", Elliott Sharp, Susie Ibarra, Joan La Barbara, Alan Licht, Ne(x)tworks and Music of the Merce Cunningham Dance Co.


May 28, 2009 - Brooklyn, NY - Darmstadt "Classics of the Avant-Garde" music series is proud to announce its first ever Institute, a month-long festival at ISSUE Project Room dedicated to exploring the connection between live performance and pedagogical practice.  This month of interdisciplinary programming includes concerts, lectures, workshops, film screenings, and talkbacks which celebrate and critically examine the continuum of the experimental tradition in music and related media.  It is the hope of Darmstadt's curators that its Institute will deepen the understanding and appreciation of experimental work, both within the New York music community and the general public.

Most performances are $15 ($12 in advance, ISSUE members, $10) and begin at 8 pm unless otherwise noted. Please visit the web site for more information at www.issueprojectroom.org.

Monday, June 1 (FREE EVENT)

Opening Event: Tony Oursler's Synesthesia (DARMSTADT Institute edit)

Tony Oursler's Synesthesia video project is an oral history of New York's downtown music, performance and art scenes.  For the DARMSTADT music series, Oursler's editor creates a special version, focusing on experimental composers.  Interviewees include John Cale, Thurston Moore, Genesis P-Orridge, Kim Gordon, Glenn Branca, Laurie Anderson, Tony Conrad, David Byrne, Paul Miller, and Arto Lindsay. These works were originally included as one element of Oursler and Mike Kelley's multimedia installation The Poetics Project. These conversations reveal fascinating insights and anecdotes from some of the most influential figures in the experimental rock and art underground of the 1970s and '80s, from pre-punk innovators to post-punk icons, from industrial and avant-garde music to noise bands and "no wave."
There is no admission charge for this program.  It is free and open to the public.
This program funded by the Experimental Television Center, supported by the New York State Council on the Arts

Deflag Haemorrhage/Haien Kontra

Ferocity and immobility, instruments abused and unused, musicians zombiefied in their 'stage persona' and in general the sense of psychosis, of necessary superfluousness that gushes from every gesture, from each decision taken by this anglo-basco duo make their live event an experience that is all but impossible to relate to, at least until they've stripped you of the costuming of dominant culture.  DEFLAG HAEMORRHAGE/ HAIEN KONTRA formed in 2001 in Hackney, East London and have collaborated with  Eddie Prevost (AMM) and Philip Best (Consumer Electronics, ex-Whitehouse).  They have performed at Netmage (Bologna),  Abject Music (Berlin), MEM (Bilbao) and  TheErrorIsMedia (London). They recently depleted a residency at Worm (Rotterdam).

David Grubbs with Michael Evans and Patrick McCarthy and in conversation with Branden W. Joseph

David Grubbs will present two pieces: "Hybrid Song Box" and "Onrushing Cloud."  "Hybrid Song Box" is Grubbs's soundtrack music for Angela Bulloch's sculptural installation "Hybrid Song Box.4," which was included in the Guggenheim Museum's recent exhibition Theanyspacewhatever.  For tonight's performance, Grubbs will be joined by Michael Evans (drums, electronics) and Patrick McCarthy (electric guitar), who performed "Hybrid Song Box" during the Guggenheim's 24-hour event that marked the close of Theanyspacewhatever.  "Hybrid Song Box" is a 30-minute piece that alternates between a section that in successive iterations is increasingly scuffed or degraded and a section that throbs, purrs, and gives off a slow stroboscopic effect.  This latter section is the soundtrack at its most Bulloch-like.  "Onrushing Cloud" developed from his recent performance and recording with Andrea Belfi and Stefano Pilia.
This concert is sponsored in part by funds received from Meet the Composer Creative Connections.

ISSUE Project Room Soundwalk-a-thon!

Soundwalks Led and Designed by Anthony Coleman, Betsey Biggs, Kenny Wollesen, and Jonathan Kane, Among Others

On this afternoon, a group of visionary artists will lead sonic excursions throughout New York as part of a rare live sonic arts experiment -- the ISSUE Project Room Soundwalk-a-thon -- a fundraiser and collective public inquiry into the connection between urban space and our collective sonic imaginations.

Led and designed by some of New York's most exciting sound artists and musicians, these walks will take groups of 10-20 people at a time on an intimate journey of sonic discovery to experience our community in a way they may never have done before -- through sound. Walks range from meditative deep listening, to sing-a-longs, to noise-making walks incorporating instruments, iPods, boomboxes, cell phones, or silence in order to amplify the nuances of our ever-changing soundscape.

Sunday, June 7 at 7pm and 9pm

Fredric Rzewski's Les Moutons de Panurge (7pm)
A rare complete reading of this seminal work from 1969 that audaciously combines pure Minimalist additive/subtractive technique with bold inderterminacy.
Music for and by Ne(x)tworks (9pm)
Michael Schumacher - isorhythmic variations
Anthony Coleman - Seven at the Golden Shovel
Joan La Barbara - Scatter
Kenji Bunch - selections from Woman in the Dunes
Miguel Frasconi - new work

Ne(x)tworks is a collaborative ensemble of musicians creating and interpreting work that features a dynamic relationship between composition and improvisation. In performance and recordings, the group locates pathways into various types of notation systems and interfaces, striving for a meaningful dialogue with the past, present, and future of creative music.  Formed in 2002 in New York City, Ne(x)tworks advances the tradition of the 'performing composer' ensemble by frequently presenting full programs of compositions created by its members. The group's repertoire also extends beyond its ranks to encompass the open scores of New York School composers, work by the their European counterparts, further experiments by the composer performers of the AACM and SoHo Scene of the 1970's, the so-called Downtown composers of the 80's, and commissioned works by like-minded contemporary colleagues.
This concert made possible through funding provided by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs.

James Blackshaw and Koen Holtcamp

"The hypnotic arpeggios at the heart of James Blackshaw's acoustic guitar playing reflect strong influences from outside the precincts of folk music: minimalist composers like Steve Reich and Terry Riley, and some of their precursors, like Erik Satie. Mr. Blackshaw, a British autodidact still in his mid-20s, fingerpicks his 12-string Guild with an immersive focus befitting such heady allusions...Conveys a stark and ancient feeling, like something handed down through the ages...." - The New York Times

"There's an indecent ease to James Blackshaw's guitar playing. His fingerpicking mantras are as melodic as a music box, gliding through dizzying tempos like clockwork... Such is the silky control he exerts over his instrument, Blackshaw often sounds more like a court harpist than a backwoods strummer." - The Wire

Søren Kjærgaard, Andrew Cyrille & Ben Street, "optics"

There is a somnambulant quality to Optics, a kind of waking-life feeling. Søren Kjærgaard, a 29-year-old Danish pianist, recruited bassist Ben Street and the phenomenal drummer Andrew Cyrille for this trio. Cyrille, known for his work with the likes of Cecil Taylor and Oliver Lake, is the senior member, and much of what happens revolves around him. The 14-minute title track that opens the CD demands patience from its musicians. Kjærgaard plots out deep, serious chords, employing dramatic pauses as the rumble of mallets on skins establishes the tone. Street picks deliberately on the upper neck of his bass as Kjærgaard then lays down an ascending series of minor chords. A quiet snare roll, a repeated three-key phrase played lightly--this is minimalist bliss. On "Cyrille Surreal," icy, detached chords play against a reluctant swing rhythm, but things evolve, as they always do, and rowdiness finally replaces inertia. - Jazz Times

IMAGINARY PLASTIC: projections and music (live and not) created by Bradley Eros

For this evening, the artist Bradley Eros creates a synergistic combination of original filmworks inspired by and including repertoire by Messiaen and Stockhausen, and audiovisual performances of works by Cage and Stockhausen, including Eros's original method of 'musique plastique,' burning projected gels and film with contact microphones. Collaborations with Nastya Osipova and Twisty Cat (Lea Bertucci and Ed Bear) round out the evening.

Thursday, June 11 at 6:30pm & 8:00pm
Stephan Moore and John King present Music of the Merce Cunningham Dance Company

6:30 pre-concert talk regarding Music and Dance, the work of John
Cage, David Tudor and the current musical practice of the MCDC

8:00 concert featuring John Cage's "Fontana Mix," currently the score for MCDC's dance "XOVER, and "Blues99," composed by John King, for two performers (commissioned by MCDC for the dance "CRWDSPCR").

Stephan Moore is a composer, performer, audio artist, and sound designer in New York City. His creative work centers around the collection and use of real-world sound, the creation and perception of sonic environments, and technological manifestations of improvisation and interactivity. Many of his performances and installation artworks make use of large, multi-channel arrays of his Hemisphere speakers. He performs regularly with Scott Smallwood in the electronic duo Evidence, and with a variety of musicians, live-video artists, and dancers. He has created custom music software for a number of composers and artists, and has taught college-level courses in composition, sound art and electronic music at several schools. He is currently the Sound Engineer and Music Coordinator of the Merce Cunningham Dance Company, and one of its core musicians.

John King, composer and guitarist, has had his music presented in many major festivals, including the tba/Time-Based Arts Festival (Portland, OR); Fronteras Festival (London); Next Wave Festival (NY); Schleswig Holstein Musik Festival (Hamburg); Intermedium 1 Festival (Berlin); Creative Time's "Music in the Anchorage" (NY); Warsaw Autumn and Bang On A Can (NY).    Mr. King's experimental opera, "La Belle Captive", based on texts by Alain Robbe-Grillet, was premiered in Buenos Aires at the Centro Experimental de Teatro Colon in April 2003, receiving further performances in London and NYC.

This concert is supported by funds from Meet the Composer Creative Connections.

Voice Workshop with Joan La Barbara

Darmstadt and ISSUE Project Room are proud to present an afternoon with legendary singer and composer Joan La Barbara as she demonstrates her "signature" extended vocal techniques and approach to singing, including the vocal warm-up she uses, stretches focusing on the shoulders and neck, essential information about healthy production of tone, resonance focusing, reinforced harmonics or overtone singing, and other techniques (inhaled singing, glottal clicks, vocal fry, ululation) and some discussion of repertoire both historical and current.  This workshop is open to singers of all levels, composers, dancers, and artists interested in Ms. La Barbara's approach.
Joan La Barbara's career as a composer/performer/soundartist explores  the human voice as a multi-faceted instrument expanding traditional boundaries in developing a unique vocabulary of experimental and extended vocal techniques: multiphonics, circular singing, ululation and glottal clicks that have become her "signature sounds".  Creating works for multiple voices, chamber ensembles, music theater, orchestra and interactive technology, her awards in the U.S. and Europe include the 2008 Letter of Distinction from the American Music Center; 2004 Guggenheim Fellowship in Music Composition; DAAD Artist-in-Residency in Berlin and 7 National Endowment for the Arts fellowships.

Bing and Ruth and Elodie Lauten: Piano Music Revisited

Formed in 2006 by Brooklyn based composer and pianist David Moore, ambient chamber band Bing and Ruth utilizes a large number of traditional acoustic instruments to craft expansive soundscapes and quiet microtonal textures. With clarinets, voices, cellos, bass, percussion, and piano, the group calls upon a family of experienced musicians and improvisers who ably interpret Moore's slow-developing, visceral compositions.

>From Piano Works to Concerto for Piano and Orchestral Memory to the moody Tango (dedicated to French painter Robert Malaval), all the way to Variations on the Orange Cycle (listed among the one hundred best works of the 20th century by Chamber Music America) and the rediscovered Sonate Modale, Elodie Lauten will perform some of her own favorite piano pieces.
Composer Elodie Lauten's music has been presented by the Lincoln Center Festival, the New York City Opera, WNYC, The Kitchen, the Performing Garage, the Dance Theater Workshop, La Mama, the Soho Baroque Opera, Downtown Music Productions, AFMM, Interpretations, the SEM Ensemble, The Whitney Museum, and at the Paris Museum of Modern Art. The current discography includes 27 titles to-date, released on Lovely Music, O.O. Discs, Point/Polygram, New Tone (Italy), 4-Tay, Tellus, Nonsequitur, Capstone, Frog Peak, Pitch, Studio 21 and Unseen Worlds.

Francesco Dillon & Emanuele Torquati

Featuring New Music for cello and piano, Francesco Dillon and Emanuele Torquati present "Simple Space", named for the evening's hallmark work composed by Miroslav Srnka. The evening also includes works from composers Giacinto Scelsi, Michel Van der Aa, Salvatore Sciarrino, Jonathan Harvey and Valentin Silvestrov.

Torino-born cellist, Francesco Dillon graduated with degrees from the Conservatorio "L.Cherubini" in Firenze under the inspirational guidance of Andrea Nannoni.

Aside from solo work (with Orchestra Nazionale Della RAI, Orchestra Sinfonica Siciliana, Orchestra Haydn, among the others) he's also a cellist for the Quartetto Prometeo. His deep interest in contemporary music led him to collaborate closely and regularly with some of the most important composers of today such as Gavin Bryars, Philip Glass, Vinko Globokar, Jonathan Harvey, Toshio Hosokawa, Giya Kancheli, David Lang, Henri Pousseur, Kaja Saariaho, and with renowned electronic musicians such as Matmos, Pansonic, Scanner, and Midaircondo.

Climax Golden Twins with Sublime Frequencies Film Screening

MY FRIEND RAIN - Sublime Frequencies (2007)
Filmed on various trips through Southeast Asia by Robert Millis and Alan Bishop from 2002 to 2007, My Friend Rain is an impressionistic collage of musical segments and tropical ambiance set against the decay and rebirth through the endless Asian monsoon cycle. Locations include: Myanmar (Burma), Angkor Wat in Cambodia, Thailand, Laos, and Indonesia. (36 minutes)

INDIA AT 78rpm - Excerpt from a work in progress (2009)
An excerpt from a project about 78rpm records and the intersection of folk and classical musical traditions in India. Mostly filmed in 2008 in the Southern Indian state of Tamil Nadu, including processions, street musicians and an interview with a slightly nutty Indian 78 collector. (19 minutes)

PHI TA KHON: GHOSTS OF ISAN - Sublime Frequencies (2006)
Phi Ta Khon: Ghosts of Isan documents a traditional Buddhist "ghost festival" held yearly in Thailand's Isan province that features beautiful handmade masks, outrageous wooden phalluses, ceremony, ritual, dancing, and endless live Thai mo lam music. The film has almost no narration (some titles set the scene and provide a little background), the idea being to create a sense of trance and to throw the viewer into the middle of the celebrations to just enjoy the colors and sounds. (47 minutes)

Climax Golden Twins is a Seattle, WA-based experimental collage outfit originally consisting of Rob Millis and Jeffery Taylor, then picking up Scott Colburn in 1996. The group's earliest material was recorded in 1993 but wasn't released until their 1996 album Imperial Household Orchestra. In 1994 they started Fire Breathing Turtle to distribute their work along with audio exotica, especially their ongoing "Victrola Favorites," complations of rare 78s from around the world. With numerous tapes, CDRs, mini-CDs, singles, side and solo projects, audiophile records and other aural collectables, being a CGT fan is no simple, or inexpensive, task.

Ensemble Pamplemousse

Founded in 2002 as a vehicle for musical exploration, Pamplemousse presents concerts of extraordinary focus and clarity. Comprised of virtuosic musicians trained in classical, electronic, and improvisational realms, the group consistently delivers fresh, exhilarating new concepts in sound. The members' eagerness for aural discovery has allowed for ample experimentation processes, where boundaries are non-existent, and from which a strong dialogue has emerged. Among the group's vernacular resides formerly unfathomable sound landscapes formed by the acute relationships the performers have forged with each other, and with the composers who are an intrinsic part of the ensemble. The product, uncompromising and resolutely beautiful, is created by incredibly innovative, yet-to-be-named approaches to performance and composition.

Sunday, June 21
Flexible Music + Imaginary Band

With an instrumentation that blurs the line between jazz, rock and classical music, Flexible Music was inspired by Dutch composer Louis Andriessen's Hout for saxophone, guitar, piano and percussion. Since 2003, the group has commissioned over 30 pieces including new works by Nico Muhly, Orianna Webb, Vineet Shende, John Link, Ryan Streber, Mikel Kuehn, Andrew Waggoner, Steve Ricks, Nizan Leibovich, Ethan Wickman, Ross Bauer, Carl Schimmel, Seung-Ah Oh, and Adam B. Silverman.

Some of the ensemble's past concerts and residencies include Brigham Young University, University of Utah, Manhattan School of Music, Cleveland Institute of Music, William Paterson University, and The Stone (NYC). Flexible Music's debut cd, FM, was released by New Focus Recordings in March 2009.

Imaginary Band is helmed by Gordon Beeferman, a composer, pianist and improviser based in New York City. His works -- orchestral, solo, chamber, and opera -- have been performed by the Minnesota Orchestra, Albany Symphony, California EAR Unit, Quartet New Generation recorder collective, American Brass Quintet, eighth blackbird, pianist Winston Choi, soprano Lisa Bielawa, and others. His chamber opera The Rat Land, performed by the New York City Opera on its VOX: Showcasing American Composers series, was praised by the New York Times as "complex and daringly modern." His new project, Imaginary Band, features Kirk Knuffke on trumpet, Ken Thomson and Matt Bauder on saxophones, Josh Sinton on clarinet, Brad Kemp on bass and Michael Evans on drums.

IPR and The Wire Magazine Celebrate Exact Change's 20th Anniversary!

Featuring Joan La Barbara, Loren Connors, Alan Licht, Till by Turning, Alex Waterman, Barbara Epler, James Hoff, Kenneth Goldsmith, Damon Krukowski and Naomi Yang responding to and reading the work of Joseph Cornell, Franz Kafka, Morton Feldman, Stefan Thermerson, Leonora Carrington, Unica Zurn and John Cage.

Exact Change publishes books of experimental literature with an emphasis on Surrealism, Dada, Pataphysics, and other nineteenth and twentieth century avant-garde art movements.

The press was founded in 1989 by Damon Krukowski and Naomi Yang, known outside publishing as musicians from the bands Damon & Naomi, and Galaxie 500.

Many Exact Change titles were originally published by larger houses, especially in the 1960s, but had more recently been left out of print; some were previously published in the U.K. but not in North America; others are new publications initiated by Exact Change. But in all cases these are books that we believe should be kept available always. We think of our list as a looking-glass version of the Penguin Classics or the Library of America, drawn from works that are equally important but have in general been neglected in the U.S.

Wednesday, June 24
Lesley Flanigan + Connie Beckley

Speaker Synth is a kinetic, sculptural instrument built by Lesley Flanigan to play the sounds of speaker feedback. Her performances with these instruments are a process of sculpting noise to make music as she samples sounds from her voice and feedback to create a pallet of melodies and rhythms. The interplay of feedback and voice takes metaphors of noise as material, instrumentation as form, and amplification as communication to build a performance of new electronic music originating entirely from human voice and speaker feedback.

Connie Beckley has presented her work in both commercial and public cultural institutions throughout Europe and North America, including the New Music America Festivals, the Venice Biennale, the Paris Biennale, and the Museum of Modern Art. Reviews and articles appear in publications including The New York Times, Art in America, Arts, Artforum, Tel Quel, Flash Art, and Art Press. Her musical composition from The Aquarium, initially released by Steirischer Herbst Festival, Graz, Austria, has been re-released in New York by Composers Recordings, Inc.

8 pm
David Linton and Tom Hamilton with Jacqueline Martelle (flute)
Works by Robert Ashley, Alvin Lucier, Al Margolis, and Tom Hamilton

Tom Hamilton has composed and performed electronic music for over 30 years, originating in the late-60s era of analog synthesis. His ongoing series of concerts, installations and recordings contrast structure with improvisation and textural electronics with acoustic instruments. Rather than addressing traditional modes of _expression_, presentation and observation, Hamilton often explores the interaction of many simultaneous layers of activity, prompting the use of "present-time listening" on the part of both performer and listener.

Hamilton is a 2005 Fellow of the Civitella Ranieri Foundation, participating in a residency at the foundation's center in Umbria. His CD London Fix received an honorary mention in the 2004 Prix Ars Electronica.

Originally a percussionist David Linton has created sound for many collaborative dance, theater, & performance settings since his arrival in downtown NY in the early 1980's. By the later 80's - after a good deal of percussion work along side other musicians - he was equally known for his live wired solo electro-acoustic drumkit performances as well a s his soundscore productions. His 1986 solo LP 'Orchesography' (on Glen Branca's Neutral Label) was an influential collusion of 'early' sampling tek with street beats and theatrical post modernism.

By the early 90's he had retired from 'live' performing in the 'improvised' electro-acoustic vein to concentrate on the vocabulary of entirely electronic music and the resultant paradigm shift in performance priorities that this new 'compressed' format suggested. Throughout the 90's Linton became a dedicated advocate for the expansion and appreciation of realtime performance in electronic media through the design and/or production of event/environments such as 'SoundLab' (1996) and eventually 'UnityGain' (1997-present).
