The American artist Phill Niblock (Indiana 1933) makes films and sound
compositions. As a filmmaker he made - during many travels - shots of
people doing rhythmic physical work. His sound compositions - composed of
different combinations of instruments ranging from voice to large chamber
orchestra - consist of one extended tone or cluster of tones. This radical
form of minimalism however, results in streams of sounds, which are rich of
variations and irregularities.   Since many years Phill Niblock is the
director of Experimental Intermedia, a sound-art program in Phill's loft in
New York with a European version in Gent since 1999. Highpoint in his
annual 'winter
solstice' consert series in New York is his own day on the 21st of
December, where from 6 till 12 am he projects his films via various
projectors, beamers and screens together with his musical works played on
high volume. The combination of the rhythmic daily work movements in the
films and the held back energy of the sounds creates a monumental situation
that  already can be noticed outside the loft on Grand Street.
Sub-urban shows Phill Niblocks film 'China '88' accompanied by a selection
of his musical works.
