On July 20 + 21 there will be a special 2-day event at Issue Project Room in Brooklyn, NY observing the legacy of late 60s-early 70s experimental music collective the Sonic Arts Union and its founding members: David Behrman, Alvin Lucier, Gordon Mumma, and the late Robert Ashley (1930-2014). Several important works by each composer will be performed with all of the living composers present at the events and in some cases performing in the works. The Friday evening’s program features later era works and premiere’s of new compositions (1993 – 2018), while the Saturday evening focuses on earlier works by the composers (1962 – 1969) as well as presentations of contemporary works from friends, colleagues, and invited guests who have been inspired by their approach.
I will perform twice on the Saturday night program, first in a performance of David Behrman‘s Runthrough (1967-68) alongside David Behrman & Cleek Schrey and then in a short performance with Oren Ambarchi referencing material from our 2017 LP Hotel Record.
It’s an absolute honour to be a part of this phenomenal event celebrating four composers whom i have long admired. Full program details and tickets are available through the Issue Project Room site here.
