Sabisha Friedberg: “Hinterkante, Resonanz (Hoffe Axiom)”
at ISSUE Project Room, 22 Boerum Place, Brooklyn
Sabisha Friedberg presents Hinterkante, Resonanz (Hoffe Axiom), a new chamber piece for acoustic instruments, hand-crafted subwoofers, and voice. The work draws on extremes of perception in the lower end of the sonic spectrum: the opening of a psychoacoustic territory which deals exclusively with bass tones.

Wed, April 17, 2013 – 8:00pm
Keiji Haino Solo
at ISSUE Project Room, 22 Boerum Place, Brooklyn
Opening a three night festival, Keiji Haino gives his first ever solo vocal concert in NYC. Known for intensely cathartic sound explorations, Haino’s unaccompanied wordless screamed vocal performances mark the influence of Artaud’s obsession, with voice violently severed from the body.

Thu, April 18, 2013 – 8:00pm
Keiji Haino and Tamio Shiraishi
at ISSUE Project Room, 22 Boerum Place, Brooklyn
ISSUE hosts a rare performance by this original, unrecorded Fushitsusha lineup from the 1970s with founding member, New York-based saxophonist Tamio Shiraishi. Known for its torrential walls of sound, Fushitsusha was formed by Haino in ’78— initially with Haino on guitar and vocals, and Shiraishi on synthesizer.

Fri, April 19, 2013 – 8:00pm
devynn emory
at ISSUE Project Room, 22 Boerum Place, Brooklyn
devynn emory, known for structured, formal, and spatially detailed dances, presents a semi-collaborative text piece with vocalist Margot Bassett: a collision of emory’s formal movement structure, pushing away from the body and through the mouth to create hyper composed sounds.

Wed, April 24, 2013 – 8:00pm
Renata Adler
at 155 Freeman St., Brooklyn (Greenpoint)
In celebration of her recently back in print novels Speedboat and Pitch Dark, author Renata Adler reads from both works followed by a conversation with NYRB Classics editor Edwin Frank.

Thu, April 25, 2013 – 8:00pm
James Hoff
at 155 Freeman St., Brooklyn (Greenpoint)
Paralleling his recent series devoted to the overlap between idea-based art, culture bound illnesses, and conceptual poetics, James Hoff is devoting his residency to exploring the concept of involuntary musical imagery, or earworms. Here he gives a performative lecture on his research and compositional strategies.
