Yarn/Wire & Pete Swanson, Eliminated Artist

Recorded live at ISSUE Project Room in March 2012, celebrated piano/percussion quartet Yarn/Wire premiere "Eliminated Artist", a collaboration with electronic artist Pete Swanson


Best known as one-half of the now-defunct noise duo Yellow Swans, Swanson has since embarked on solo projects that range between free guitar noise, dismantled techno, and electronic soundscapes. For “Eliminated Artist,” Swanson recorded improvised rehearsals by Yarn/Wire and worked with the ensemble to craft a repeatable framework for live performance.

A combination of acoustic signal and rehearsal recordings were then constructed into a live electronic mix by Swanson during the performance. Yarn/Wire returned to ISSUE on Thursday, May 23rd, 2013 playing new works by two of NYC's most exciting musicians: composer/multi-instrumentalist Tyondai Braxton and trumpeter/composer Peter Evans.

Blank Forms


Blank Forms is a curatorial platform dedicated to the presentation and preservation of time-based performance practices, with emphasis on ephemeral practices that fall outside conventional institutional support systems and consequently risk remaining inaccessible, minimally documented and obscure. Through a variety of curatorial approaches, including public performances, online and print publishing, exhibitions, workshops, seminars and residencies, Blank Forms crafts a robust support structure for both the artist and the presentation of their work.
