Phill Niblock - 2015 Events

Monday January 12, 7.30pm
Rice and Flowers - video, color, stereo sound, 2014, 46 minutes; video: Katherine Liberovskaya (2014); music: Phill Niblock (2008)
Video by Katherine Liberovskaya with music by Phill Niblock (New York premiere)
Since 2001, Liberovskaya's work in video has been focused on collaborations with composers and sound artists in the context of live video & sound performance where her visuals seek to create improvisatory "music" for the eyes. Niblock's music is an exploration of sound textures created by multiple tones in very dense, often atonal tunings (generally microtonal in conception) performed in long durations. The layering of long tones only slightly distinct in pitch creates a multitude of beats and generates complex overtone patterns. The piece chosen for Rice and Flowers is titled "One Large Rose" and was completed in 2008. A 46 minute very close up long take of counting grains of white rice, one by one, with a knife point, on a white surface, to the orchestra piece "One Large Rose" (2008), played by the Nelly Boyd ensemble from Hamburg (available on "Touch Strings" TO:79). A projection/installation created for the 2014 multidisciplinary festival REHEAT at Kleylehof, Nickelsdorf, Austria, Northern Burgenland.
