"Drawing its participants from the first 10 years of ISSUE Project Room’s Artists-In-Residence Program, AIR Alumni Collaborations is a performance that brings together former ISSUE resident artists in striking new combinations. Eccentric, interdisciplinary, and deeply experimental, the new collaborations showcase the wide-range of approaches found within the ISSUE community, amplifying each artist’s personal aesthetics while drawing unexpected parallels between their work.
Thursday, January 19th, ISSUE presents three first-ever collaborative performances by former ISSUE Artists-In-Residence focusing on highlighting their parallel and divergent performance strategies. Cellist, vocalist, and electronics producer Audrey Chen performs alongside two key members of the collaborative ensemble Ne(x)tworks: renowned vocalist Joan La Barbara and composer, improviser and electro-acoustician Miguel Frasconi. Berlin-based composer and synthesist Doron Sadja pairs his particular style of multi-channel spatialized sound, pristine electronics, dense noise, and immersive light projections with multimedia artist Rauel De Nieves’ encompassing narrative and multimedia performance style. MV Carbon performs a new collaboration with media artist Bradley Eros sharing the role of manipulating sound and image on a new project called The Mystery of Spiders -- a sound & projection performance conceptualizing scores based on spider webs.
Curated by Lea Bertucci and Chris McIntyre
Memory City is a new ensemble work by cellist and composer Leila Bordreuil. This is Leila's third event as Artist-in-Residence at ISSUE Project Room.

π=3.14… continues “Dead End, Falling”
by Yoshiko Chuma/School of Hard Knocks
"Dead End , Don’t Let Me fall is the latest in a series of multimedia performance π=3.14… which was started in 2007 as a work perpetually in progress. It is a set structure under the concept “the invisible rehearsal". The series has been concerned with borders, displacement and violence. Endless peripheral border makes the notice ”We are not so different from one other."
Cellist Leila Bordreuil and CJM join acclaimed sound aritst and performer Michael J. Schumahcer to spend an hour inside his portable 12-channel sound system at the Sunview Luncheonette in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.

The performance itself is a site for destabilizing the familiar, testing new ground, defining difference, and creating a shared practice that resonates with layers of experience, points of view, and perspective."
From My Ocean website:
"My Ocean is an outdoor, site-specific sound and performance installation at Ordway Prairie Nature Preserve, in Pope County, MN, taking place on August 13 & 14, 2016. Performance Artist Bethany Lacktorin leads audiences on an hour-long walk through a carefully composed environment of sound, music and storytelling. The pathway runs through a diverse range of ecological habitats, as well as the ruins of Fort Lake Johanna, and the site of Lacktorin’s childhood home, which had previously been her great-grandmother’s General Store. Along the walk, Lacktorin shares stories ranging from her family history and personal memoir, to naturalist interpretations of the local ecology, Dakota history and Immigrant legends."

TILT Brass Sextet participates in the opening ceremony of a new public space at the eastern edge of Brooklyn Navy Yard. A project of Brooklyn Greenway Initiative, Naval Cemetery Landscape is a "publicly-accessible green space which will revitalize the native plant and pollinator populations in the region and its design includes a raised walkway to allow visitors to enter the space without disturbing the hallowed ground (of the former Brooklyn Naval Hospital Cemetery.)"
The Sextet will premiere a new site-specific work by Director Chris McIntyre. The new work, Runnegackonck Presencing, is named after the ancestral creek that meandered around the Hospital and Cemetery grounds on its way to the former Wallabout Bay.

Hub Line for the High Line
a site specific performance piece by Daniel Goode
For thirty gong players, accordion, trombone, and clarinet, each gong player with a hand-held auto hubcap. These are light round metal disks, with beautiful complex tones that at one time covered the center of car wheels, often with iconic symbols representing the make of the car. The thirty players will form a long line, playing in sequence from high to low, with a low trombone pedal tone as a cadence. The accordion will pick out harmonies from the gongs, while the clarinet plays high melodic riffs. The piece will begin in one part of the High Line, and move as a procession to a second spot for a concluding movement.
Featured soloists: Peter Zummo, trombone; Kamala Sankaram, accordion; Daniel Goode, clarinet.

Klang (Die 24 Stunden des Tages)
by Karlheinz Stockhausen (U.S. Premiere)
CJM performs during Glanz (Brilliance), the 10th hour in the Klang cycle.
Bryan Young, bassoon
Alexandrina Boyanova, viola
Vasko Dukovski, clarinet
Joe Drew, trumpet
Chris McIntyre, trombone
Kemp Jernigan, oboe
Jay Rozen, tuba
Karlheinz Stockhausen's fiercely original KLANG (meaning "sound" in German) is an acoustic and electronic work so massive that it requires all day and all three of the Met's iconic buildings to stage. This twenty-one-part, unfinished composition was originally envisioned by Stockhausen as consisting of twenty-four individual compositions (one for each hour of the day), but the work was left unfinished at the time of his death. This performance will mark the U.S. premiere of Klang in its entirety, and will be performed at the Metropolitan Museum's Fifth Avenue building, The Met Breuer, and The Cloisters museum and gardens in Fort Tryon Park. More details will follow."

The School of Hard Knocks Under the artistic direction of Yoshiko Chuma, The School of Hard Knocks is a New York-based collective of choreographers, dancers, actors, singers, musicians, designers, and visual artists. Since premiering at the 1980 Venice Biennale, this award-winning company has created and performed over 60 original works in the United States, Asia, Europe, and the Middle East. The School of Hard Knocks takes its name from the American idiom meaning to learn things the hard way on the proverbial "street," and was first used as the title of a performance at the 1980 Venice Biennale. Over the course of the company's history, more than 2,000 people have performed to wide critical acclaim under Chuma's direction in theatrical dance concerts, street performances, grand parades, large-scale spectacles and
intimate living rooms.
Yoshiko Chuma, Conceptual Artist/Choreographer/Artistic Director of The School of Hard Knocks, has been a firebrand of New York's downtown dance scene since arriving in 1976. She has created more than 60 full-length company works, commissions and site-specific events for venues in 35 countries, constantly challenging the notion of performance for both audience and participant. Her work has been presented in such diverse venues as Pyramid Club, Danceteria, Joyce Theater, the Eiffel Tower, Newcastle Swing Bridge, City Center, Lincoln Center, the former National Theater of Sarajevo, the perimeter of the Hong Kong harbor, World Financial Center, and an ancient ruin in Macedonia, among many others.
Heather Litteer is an actress, performance artist and chanteuse originally from Georgia but now calls NYC her home. She is a member of Caden Manson’s Big Art Group touring internationally and in the states.
She is the recipient of the 2014 Fox Fellowship with The William and Eva Fox Foundation and TCG. La Mama will be her resident company throughout this process and will be presenting her one woman show "Lemonade" at La MaMa 2016.

In recent years she has been building her reputation in collaborative performance art, working with the artist Jo Wood Brown on a interdisciplinary project “InnerCity Projects”
Yukio Suzuki is a dancer and choreographer. In 1997 he began studying Butoh dance and later performed in works by Ko Murobushi and so on. In the year 2000 he founded his own company, "YUKIO SUZUKI Projects". The basic principal of his interpretation is not the technique, but the character of the dance language, for which he has been acclaimed even outside of his native Japan. He has been touring in over 40 cities worldwide, enthralling audiences with his pliant, delicate, and tenacious movements.
Christopher McIntyre leads a varied career as performer, composer, and curator/producer. He interprets and improvises on trombone and synthesizer and composes for TILT Brass, UllU duo, and Ne(x)tworks. He has recorded for Tzadik, New World, POTTR, and Mode.
