"The Movement of People Working"; An exhibition of the films and music by Phill Niblock, Curated by Mathieu Copeland
Sketch Gallery, 20th of January until the 10th of March 2007, Opening, 20th Jan - 12.30 to 14.30
Sketch Gallery, 9 Conduit Street, W1S 2YZ, London, 00 44 (0) 870 770 6515, gallery@sketch.uk.com - 10am 5pm, Tuesday to Saturday, free admission

We are delighted to present, for the first time in the UK, most of the films from The Movement of People Working series by Phill Niblock. The films portray human labour in its most elementary form. Filmed between 1973 to 1991 in locations including Mexico, Hungary, Brazil, Lesotho, Portugal, China and Japan, The Movement of People Working focuses on work as a choreography of movements and gestures, dignifying the mechanical yet natural repetition of labourers actions. In parallel to the films, a wide selection of Niblocks slowly evolving harmonically minimalist music, composed between 1968 and 2006, will be playing continuously in the exhibition space.
The opening on January 20th will feature flautist/bassist Susan Stenger (Band Of Susans/Big Bottom) and guitarist Robert Poss (Band Of Susans), long-time performers of Niblock's music, playing a variety of pieces (some of which were composed especially for them).

"This is purely awesome drone work and one of the loudest, most commanding minimal works: "Dense, elusive trance music distinguished by its singular methods of construction and the intricacy of the relationships of its components with a surprising flux of pulsing adjacent tones which convey a stunning range of acoustic phenomena."

"Five More String Quartets", a piece by Phill Niblock for five multi-tracked string quartets will be performed with support from Hildesheim's 'Quartett PLUS 1' (Katharina Pfander, Philip Lehmann,
Maria Pache and Lisa Stepf). Minimal Music by Arvo Part, Philip Glass and Frederic Rzewski will be interpreted by Hildesheim based String quartett PLUS 1 and accompanied by live overhead drawing by the artist Tine Voecks.

Zondag 18 Februari; 14.00 uur

Thomas Ankersmit & Phill Niblock

Een optreden in het van Abbemuseum van twee geluidskunstenaars die klank als beeldhouwers te lijf gaan . De Amerikaanse componist en film / videokunstenaar Phill Niblock (1933) is a l sinds halverwege de jaren zestig actief met multi-media presentaties. Zijn uiterst minimalistische composities zijn gewoonlijk gebaseerd op drones, interferentie en boventonen. Hij is, naar eigen zeggen, sterk geÔnspireerd door beeldende kunstenaars Mark Rothko, Sol Lewitt en Donald Judd. Zijn voorliefde voor extreem luide en massieve tonen manifesteerde zich al snel als zijn handelsmerk en het is tot op de dag van vandaag het enige geluid waar zijn muzikale interesse ligt. De muziek van Niblock valt zonder het ñ ook door hem geleverde - complementerende beeld niet te beluisteren, wordt vaak gezegde. Sinds 2003 werkt Niblock veel samen met de in Berlijn wonende Nederlandse altsaxofonist en elektronica-musicus Thomas Ankersmit.

Video Image and its Perception

At the end of the sixties, visual artists started using video as a medium. Recording images on magnetic tape was more affordable, more direct and easier than filming, and the arrival of new equipment such as the 'port-a-pack' made it even more accessible. It resulted in the development of video and multi-media art. The universe of the video installation defines itself from the spectator's experience of it in the here and now. 'Time' coincides exceptionally with e'space. Time and space are synonymous in video installations; they express two aspects of the same reality.
The exhibition proposes for Moscow public 4 video installations.
The artists: Phill Niblock, Koen Theys, Frank Theys, Alina and Jeff Bliumis

OptoSonic Tea e una serie mensile di incontri dedicati alla convergenza dei live visual con il live sound, focalizzata prevalentemente sugli aspetti visivi. Nate alla galleria Diapason di NYC, da Katharine Liberovskaya e Ursula Scherrer, queste presentazioni/discussioni esplorano le diverse forme di live visuals e i differenti modi in cui queste possono interagire con il suono. Ogni serata della rassegna ospita due artisti o gruppi di artisti che lavorano con il video, ognuno dei quali si esibisce in un live set con un sound artist a scelta. Le presentazioni sono seguite da una discussione informale, offrendo e sorseggiando te, circa le pratiche di lavoro dell'artista. Un terzo artista -o moderatore- generalmente proveniente da precedenti generazioni di artisti visivi, e invitato allo scopo specifico di partecipare alla discussione e di creare un dialogo tra le pratiche correnti e passate, fornendo quindi differenti prospettive sul presente e sul futuro.
