Bill Orcutt & Circuit Des Yeux / Loren Connors
Sep 14, 2015 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm| $18
ISSUE Project Room’s Fall 2015 season opens at the First Unitarian Congregational Society in Brooklyn Heights with Bill Orcutt and Circuit Des Yeux duo, as well as a solo set by Loren Connors. Known for his frenetic style crossing blues, punk, and free improvisation, Bill Orcutt is hailed as a master guitarist and has been a central driver of experimentalism since his days with 90s punk/noise duo Harry Pussy. This evening Orcutt appears for the first time duo with Circuit Des Yeux, alias of Chicago’s Haley Fohr. Celebrated for her brooding, raw songwriting and singular four-octave voice, Fohr shared bills with Orcutt numerous times before the pair came together for the recent release All That’s Real, a collaborative 7” on Orcutt’s Palilalia label. Legendary improvising guitarist Loren Connors performs a solo set. Connors’ solo compositions have evolved continuously over three decades, moving between bare and soaring textures, yet always articulate with a deeply expressive core.
