NY Times: A Single Note | 2017

Seth Colter Walls profiles Randy Gibson for The New York Times

"As is sometimes the case with outwardly unvaried Minimalist music, the texture emerges from the overtones, the frequencies that sound above fundamental notes (in this case, those seven Ds on the piano). Mr. Gibson’s electronic design for the piece highlights these naturally occurring acoustic phenomena, making their ghostly quality more easily perceived."

Presentation History
Resonating Apparitions | New York City : April 11th, 2017

The Four Pillars Appearing from The Resonating Discs invoking The 72:81:88 Confluence brings a new level of conceptual rigor and complexity to The Four Pillars world. A new concept called Harmonic Time which utilizes a perceptual score built from units of time that expand and contract imperceptibly. These time units are based on the same numeric elements as the rest of the work: structure and pitch reinforce each other creating an immersive ecosystem where time stands still, if only for a moment.
