Phill Niblock (b. 1933) is a New York-based minimalist composer, filmmaker, multi-media musician and director of Experimental Intermedia, a foundation for avant-garde music. Niblock’s work is an exploration of sound textures created by multiple tones in very dense, often atonal tunings (generally microtonal in conception) performed in long durations. This highly original music that, while having things in common with early drone-based Minimalism, is utterly distinct in sound and technique. Niblock continues to influence a generation of musicians, especially younger players from a variety of genres including Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore and Lee Renaldo.
