DARMSTADT presents ESSENTIAL REPERTOIRE at ISSUE PROJECT ROOM, October 22-26, 2008 - Festival this week at Issue Project Room organized by contemporary music series DARMSTADT. "Entitled "Essential Repertoire," its six performances are an initial attempt to accumulate a unique and expanding collection of cherished experimental music: from the New York School through the Minimalists, European approaches, and a number of electronic practices, alongside music's connectivity to art, performance, and multimedia. Darmstadt's curators encourage vivid interpretations of their favorite avant-garde works from the city's liveliest composers and musicians. Our final day of programming focuses on new work by emerging artists."
