Philip Glass: Music With Friends featuring Tristan Perich and Jon Gibson
Legendary composer Philip Glass, both controversial and ever-present, has captured the American public perhaps more than any living composer. For his operas, symphonies, compositions for his own ensemble, and wide-ranging collaborations Glass has had an unprecedented impact upon the musical and intellectual life of his times.
For three intimate evenings, Philip Glass comes to ISSUE Project Room, New York's City's only European Chamber Music Hall. His only performance in Brooklyn this year, "Philip Glass: Music With Friends" is a rare occasion featuring performances by Laurie Anderson [6/15], Jon Gibson [6/14], and Stephin Merritt of the Magnetic Fields [6/13], as well as former ISSUE Artists-in Residence Tristan Perich [6/14], Ryan Sawyer [6/15] and Nate Wooley [6/13]. The full artist roster will be announced soon, under 200 seats will be sold for each performance.
This second evening of the three day festival includes solo performances by Philip Glass and Jon Gibson, and a special presentation of Tristan Perich's "Momentary Expanse," for solo vibraphone and 2-channel 1-bit electronics, and "What's thought of as a boundless, continuous, expanse..." for five sopranos and 15-channel 1-bit electronics with text by Bernadette Mayer.
