ISSUE Project Room is kicking off the calendar at its new 110 Livingston Street digs with Gaudeamus Muziekweek New York. The jewel-box theater where ISSUE Project Room won a 20-year rent-free lease is the ideal venue for the New York version of the four-day Netherlands-based contemporary music festival. The theater, originally designed by McKim, Mead, and White in the 1920s, is the only European-style chamber hall open to the public in New York, and, once it’s fully renovated, will be the only one capable of producing 360-degree visuals and have multi-channel sound. The festival kicks off with the U.S. premiere of 2011 Gaudeamus prize winner Yoshi Onishi’s Depart Dans… performed by Wet Ink Ensemble. It continues with performances by the likes of the CUNY New Music Ensemble, International Contemporary Ensemble, a night of electronic music with Wouter Snoei, Matthew Ostrowski and Philip White & Ted Hearne, and more.
