Phill Niblock’s music is the emancipation of the drone, the splitting into atomic parts of dozens of flailing, beating frequencies singing out loudly in close acoustical proximity to each other. His works are broad oceans of sound, where very little really “happens” but where there is a great deal to be heard, felt, and pondered.

His music involves electronic manipulation of acoustical sound sources recorded over the years by several generations of musicians, playing every instrument under the sun from flute, bass clarinet, saxophone, trombone, digeridoo, to electric guitar, bowed piano, cello, organ, hurdy-gurdy, and much else. Recordings of single held tones are layered into textures rich in micro-nuance, building into imposing, complex soundscapes.
Tonight he presents his work with live musicians.

This is the second event in Brunel@Café Oto, a new series of events organised in collaboration with the Music Department at Brunel University, tonight taking advantage of a rare Niblock appearance in the UK.
