Polymath THURSTON MOORE is best known as a member of Sonic Youth. He is also a tirelessly prolific collaborator and solo artist, as well as the force behind Ecstatic Peace! Records and the recently launched Ecstatic Peace Library. His books include In Silver Rain with a Paper Key (Ecstatic Peace Library), Mix Tape: The Art of Cassette Culture (Universe), and, with Byron Coley, No Wave: Post-Punk. Underground. New York. 1976-1980 (Abrams).
Chelsea Light Moving is a band started by Thurston Moore to play neo-no mantra psyche pummel for free-heads and sweet-minds. Thurston plays electric and 12 string acoustic guitar damage, Samara Lubelski destroys violin and bass notes, Keith Wood rips holes in every guitar, and John Moloney is a beast on skin thump.
Joseph Keckler is a Brooklyn-based musician, writer, raconteur, and performance artist known both for his musical output as well as for creating narrative monologues and collage-like performance and video works, often musical, that involve transformation through multiple characters. His performance pieces and concerts have been presented by The New Museum, SXSW Music, Joe’s Pub, La MaMa ETC, Amsterdam’s Bellevue Theatre, and other venues. Joseph has received residencies from MacDowell and Yaddo and a 2012 NYFA Fellowship in Interdisciplinary Work.

ISSUE Project Room is a pioneering performance center, presenting projects by both emerging and established artists that expand the boundaries of artistic practice. ISSUE plays a vital role in NYC, commissioning more than 20 new works each year that place a special focus on artists whose important contributions to the creative field have been under-recognized, often as a result of gender, sexuality, or geographic location.
