Prince Rama
2011 Artist-in-Residence Prince Rama will transform ISSUE into a point of origins. They will construct a “sacred space” using gathered matter from off-site urban wilds of Brooklyn. Audience members will be invited to build their own instruments and utilize them in an extended jam session open to anyone who wishes to attend (regardless of musical skill). This aims to investigate the utopian symbology of “the jam session” as a poetic reenactment and microcosmic creation of an ideal democratic society. Cut off from the rest of the world, yet wholly imbedded within it, this ritual space becomes a NO PLACE.

09/09 @ 8:00pm –
Either/Or is a cutting-edge contemporary music ensemble based in New York City. Founded in 2004 by pianist/composer Richard Carrick and percussionist David Shively, Either/Or focuses on compelling new and recent works for unconventional ensemble formations rarely heard elsewhere. The group draws upon its roster, featuring some of New York’s leading interpreters, to present intense chamber music alongside larger ensemble works.

Either/Or will present a program featuring:
Richard Carrick – Shadow Flow
Hans Thomalla – Piano Counterpart
Keeril Makan – Zones d’accord
Keeril Makan – Mu
Keeril Makan – Voice within voice

09/11 @ 3:30pm –
