Jason Lescalleet and Graham Lambkin

Graham Lambkin and Jason Lescalleet began their collaborative endeavors back in 2008 with the release of their much acclaimed The Breadwinner— a work which cracked open the artistic potential of mundane and commonplace circumstance, part of their triptych on Erstwhile including Air Supply, and the September release of Photographs— a monolithic reappraisal of formative place and event. Pairing Lescalleet’s renowned architectural rendering of sound-as-physical form with Lambkin’s skittish, oft-bizarre approach to stage performance, this duo have pushed the aesthetics of their collaboration to extremes.

Using sung and electronically generated sine tones, room acoustic phenomena, and recordings, Seth Cluett’s live performance challenges boundaries between personal and communal listening. Exploiting the extreme juxtaposition of small bare loudspeakers and large subwoofers, this new work is tensely suspended between full body immersion and brittle, sparse timelessness.

Ten Years Alive on the Infinite Plain– a two-month festival celebrating ISSUE Project Room’s 10th anniversary– revisits seminal past projects and initiates new relationships with over 60 artists working across disciplines of sound, dance, performance, and literature. Presented as a series of 24 evenings of provocative double billings, Ten Years Alive blurs the boundaries between divergent disciplines and practices and celebrating the vibrancy of the Brooklyn experimental arts community.

Jason Lescalleet‘s sound world occupies a space between noise, contemporary composition, and minimal electronics. Using decidedly primitive tactics and equipment (e.g. antiquated reel-to-reel recorders, damaged tape, etc.), his work focuses on extreme frequencies and microscopic audio detail. He’s been a member of Due Process, performed and recorded with Keith Rowe, Joe Colley, Jason Kahn, John Hudak, Bhob Rainey and Greg Kelley (both separately and as Nmperign), and most recently Graham Lambkin in their Breadwinner project which has yielded unprecedented and glorious results in the electroacoustic music of today. Lescalleet lives and works in the state of Maine.

Graham Lambkin has been a unique presence in underground culture for the past twenty years. As a musician he first came to attention through the work of his band The Shadow Ring, blending DIY folk, noise, abstract electronics and surreal poetry into strikingly original forms. For the past decade Lambkin has enjoyed a solo career, releasing a string of memorable LP’s/CD’s including 2007′s highly acclaimed Salmon Run, as well as a fruitful collaboration with New England sound artist Jason Lescalleet, the first results of which were issued in 2008 as The Breadwinner by Erstwhile. Lambkin is also respected as a visual artist, designing cover art and merchandise for The Dead C, Double Leopards, Harry Pussy and Blessure Grave to name but few.

Seth Cluett is an artist, performer, and composer whose work ranges from photography and drawing to video, sound installation, concert music, and critical writing. His “subtle…seductive, immersive” (Artforum) work has been characterized as “rigorously focused and full of detail” (e/i) and “dramatic, powerful, and at one with nature” (The Wire). Exploring the territory between the senses, Cluett’s works are marked by a detailed attention to perception and to the role of sound in the creation of a sense of place, the workings of memory, and the experience of time. His research interests and critical writings investigate the media history of the loudspeaker, the history and documentation of sound in art, archival practices for media art, and architectural acoustics.
