Presentation History
Seventh Avant Music Festival | New York City : February 20 - March 5, 2016

Apparitions of The Four Pillars in The Midwinter Starfield Symmetry under The 72:81:88 Confluence represents a major evolution in the Apparitions of The Four Pillars family of works. The work further reduces the performance complexity allowing the performers to focus entirely on sustaining and highlighting elements of the core tuning structures of the work.

The work is presented in a new video and light environment, Quadrilateral Starfield Symmetry A:L Base 11:273 in The 181 Profusion, created by Gibson with the lighting designer Kryssy Wright which aids the musical in psychic journey of the performance.
