In March 2000 Lampo was honored to present Phill Niblock's local debut.
Now, the minimalist composer returns with works for voice, flute, cello,
saxophone and hurdy-gurdy joined by Thomas Buckner and Chicagoans Niki
Mitchell, Fred Lonberg-Holm and Michael Colligan.
Niblock's music is thick and layered, made with adjacent, sustained tones
originally played on conventional instruments. He records these minute
pitch differences and then overlaps and multitracks them. In concert he
adjusts the prerecorded music with his laptop and live musicians mix with
the harmonic drone.
Anticipate a spectacular sonic experience at the Renaissance Society. To
hear the clouds of high frequency harmonics the playback sound level must
be loud. Niblock also will work with the acoustic properties of the space
to create a precise multi-speaker placement.
