Tony Conrad and Charlemagne Palestine
Tony Conrad and Charlemagne Palestine, masters of improvisation and drone, come together for a special duo concert at Brooklyn's First Unitarian Congregational Society. Presented by ISSUE Project Room as part of a two-night celebration of Conrad's 75th birthday, the evening-length performance pairs Conrad on violin with Palestine on pipe organ, grand piano, and voice.

In 2014 ISSUE presented Palestine's first New York performance on the pipe organ, but his mystical techniques were first hatched in 1964 at the Unitarian Church on Central Park West. It was at Saint Thomas Church next to the Museum of Modern Art, where Charlemagne played carillon bells every afternoon during the sixties, that Conrad and Palestine were first introduced; as Palestine tells it, Conrad was drawn up by the church's bell towers clanging, to find Palestine manning the bells. They became fast friends. Their nearly 5 decades-long association has seen few collaborations; in 2006, after a 30-year hiatus they released "An Aural Symbiotic Mystery" (Sub Rosa), which Pitchfork called "the most inspired release of either of their careers."
