About "Taking Issue"

Live violin collaboration between avant-garde legends Tony Conrad and Genesis Breyer P-Orridge featuring percussion by Morrison Edley.

Presented by filmmaker Marie Losier and recording live in January, 2009 at Issue Project Room in Brooklyn, NY. This concert was a brief showcase tying together the interpretive violin connection between Tony Conrad (minimalist pioneer and early member of LaMonte Young’s Theatre of Eternal Music) and Genesis Breyer P-Orridge (COUM Transmissions, Throbbing Gristle and Psychic TV).

Their unique and chaotic relationship with the world’s most cherished instrument created for a breathtaking reinvention of harmonious drone and elegant comedy.  Both artists have previously been the subject of filmed documents by Ms. Losier, thus creating a perfect storm of playful study.

Released and dedicated to the memory of Issue Project Room founder Suzanne Fiol, 1960-2009
