Philip Glass: Music With Friends featuring Nate Wooley and Stephin Merritt
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 first evening of the three day festival includes solo performance by Philip Glass followed by a special presentation of Nate Wooley's seven part 7 Storey Mountain, taking off from volume 3.  Performed last year at Issue Project Room's Can Factory space, the work is made in miniature, and combines amplified and acoustic properties with an ever evolving tape component.  This version, ostensibly volume 3.5, takes the ecstatic nature of the original and draws it out to create a feeling of stasis in religious fervor.

The evening closes with a performance by Stephin Merritt of the Magnetic Fields, followed by a duo performance with Glass and Merritt.

A special benefit for ISSUE Project Room and the Aurora Foundation
