Phil Niblock


The esteemed minimalist composer and visual artist offers a maximalist helping of meditative work during his annual winter solstice concert, a six-hour acoustic and electronic celebration of seasonal segues. Niblock uses music, film, photography, and video to explore processes and transformations, such as the way in which a piece of iron ends up as equine footwear. Niblock’s droning planes and cloudy sound masses are equally intimate and universal.
