Tectonics Festival New York 2014

May 23 – 25, 2014, ISSUE Project Room presented the inaugural Tectonics Festival New York, featuring an array of emerging and iconic voices in contemporary composition. This video compiles excerpts of some of the many highlights from throughout the three-day festival, including the premiere of a new chamber work piece by Eyvind Kang, featuring an incredible cast of singular performers including Oren Ambarchi, Jessika Kenney, Hildur Guonadottir, and Stephen O’Malley; a solo percussion work by Eric Richards, performed by Alan Zimmerman; a very rare performance of the late Harley Gaber’s magnum opus string quintet The Winds Rise in the North; the premiere of new work by sound artist Crys Cole; a performance of Alvin Lucier’s Still Lives by pianist Jenny Lin; and an improvised duo performance by festival founder/curator Ilan Volkov and percussionist Eli Keszler.

Tectonics Festival New York returns in May 2015, presented by ISSUE Project Room at Abrons Art Center.
