Artist Tony Conrad cancelled his appearance at this weekend's Big Ears Festival due to ill health. The performances of his collaboration with Faust, 'Outside the Dream Syndicate,' and his 'Amplified Drone Strings' concert continued as planned.
Japanese underground guru Keiji Haino and New York avant-garde minimalist Tony Conrad will play at Issue Project Room on September 26, marking their first NY performance together since 2009. The evening will begin with cellist Okkyung Lee.
On June 22, 2013, La Monte Young and Marian Zazeela celebrated their golden anniversary. Come August, the couple would mark an equally important bond together--50 years living, working and performing at their Dream House (between Franklin and White Streets) in Lower Manhattan.
Be it Eli Keszler and Sō Percussion under the bridge downtown, Nate Wooley and friends up on Seven Storey Mountain, Ben Vida losing control or all of John Cage's HPSCHD, the last three months alone would've been reason enough to celebrate Brooklyn's ISSUE Project Room.
