2013 is the 80th year of NYC minimalist composer Phill Niblock. At this concert he performs and projects films, along with Thomas Ankersmit. This is also the tenth anniversary of their collaborations.
Niblock will showcase two new pieces of music – Vlada BC (2013, 20 minutes) for Viola d’Amore (Elisabeth Smalt, viola d’amore) Euph (2013, 23:30) for a two belled euphonium (bass trombone, added) (Melvyn Porre, euphonium – as well as his recent piece FeedCorn Ear (2012, 30 minutes) for Arne Deforce, cello, which appears on a new double CD on Touch (TO91), published October 2013. He will also show recently restored films from his looking at the movement of people working series, much of which has never been shown before.
Thomas Ankersmit, whose set at last year’s Visionary Kingdom was one of the standouts, will present a live quadraphonic sound performance for Serge analogue modular synthesizer, in which shadow-phenomena of human auditory perception mix with swarms of hungry locusts.
