The Third Pillar in Primal Imperfect Palindrome with The Souvenir of The Second Pillar, The Floating Cirrus over the Pumping Slush, and The Highest Moving Chordal Motif from Apparitions of The Four Pillars


Gibson's first solo collaboration in The Four Pillars and his first experiment with extended durations:The three hour The Third Pillar in Primal Imperfect Palindrome with The Souvenir of The Second Pillar, The Floating Cirrus over the Pumping Slush, and The Highest Moving Chordal Motif from Apparitions of The Four Pillars commissioned by William Lang in 2011 and premiered at the Avant Music Festival in 2012 will be presented in a newly updated version with a new collaborative video environment that bridges the early world of The Four Pillars with Gibson's current environmental work.

Sitting alone with a microphone, William Lang will intone selected pitches from The Third Pillar with a growing and evolving sonic environment of sine waves and extended duration harmonic delay lines. The updated score and delay structures will bring the concept of Harmonic Time into this early landmark work.
