Issue Project Room is New York City's most unique and distinctive performance space. Presented in cooperation with Tennessee-based Front Porch Productions, "THE INDEPENDENTS" is a mammoth music festival that will showcase over fifty artists from seven of this nation's most prestigious independent record labels. Throughout the month of January, New York will reverberate with the sounds of epic minimalism (Tony Conrad, Rhys Chatham, Phill Niblock, Leif Inge), ecstatic clangor (Thurston Moore, Lee Ranaldo, Zeena Parkins, Gamelan Son of Lion), raw Americana (Jack Rose, Loren Connors, Peter Walker, No Neck Blues Band), free improv (Charles Gayle, Paul Flaherty, Bern Nix) and avant songsmithing (Christina Carter, Richard Bishop, Badgerlore, Lichens). Featuring an amazing array of improvised, minimal and outsider musics, as well as full programs of film and video, "THE INDEPENDENTS" promises to be an event of epic proportions, in an intimate setting.
