Phill Niblock is a New York-based minimalist composer, multi-media musician, and director of Experimental Intermedia Foundation. Since the mid-1960’s he has performed at venues around the world from the Museum of Modern Art to Akademie der Kunste, Berlin. His densely layered drones have inspired a younger generation including Glenn Branca and Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore and Lee Renaldo. Niblock says, “What I am doing with my music is to produce something without rhythm or melody, by using many microtones that cause movements very, very slowly.” His landmark debut album, Nothin To Look At Just A Record, was reissued on Superior Viaduct in 2013.
For this special performance at The Lab, Niblock will perform recent compositions and screen footage from his breathtaking “Movement of People Working” series.
