Phill Niblock is an intermedia artist using music, film, photography, video

and computers. He makes thick, loud drones of music, filled with

microtones of instrumental timbres which generate many other tones in

the performance space. Simultaneously, he presents films / videos which

look at the movement of people working, or computer driven black and

white abstract images floating through time. He was born in Indiana in

1933. Since the mid-60's he has been making music and intermedia performances which have been

shown at numerous venues around the world among which: The Museum

of Modern Art; The Wadsworth Atheneum; the Kitchen; the Paris Autumn

Festival; Palais des Beaux Arts, Brussels; Institute of Contemporary Art,

London; Akademie der Kunste, Berlin; ZKM; Carpenter Center for the

Visual Arts at Harvard; World Music Institute at Merkin Hall NYC. Since

1985, he has been the director of the Experimental Intermedia Foundation

in New York where he has been an artist/member since 1968. He is the producer of Music and

Intermedia presentations at EI since 1973 (about 1000 performances) and

the curator of EI's XI Records label. In 1993 he was part of the formation

of an Experimental Intermedia organization in Gent, Belgium - EI v.z.w.

Gent - which supports an artist-in-residence house and installations there.

Phill Niblock's music is available on the XI, Moikai, Mode and Touch labels.

DVDs of films and music are available on the Extreme label, on the Mode

Records label, and on the VonArchives label.
