Randy Gibson

Randy Gibson

Born: 1982

Hometown: Boulder, CO

Based in: Hudson Valley, NY

Randy Gibson composes with sound, time, light, and space. Through performances, objects, and installations Gibson aims to shift the experience of passing time and confront the edges of perception and memory.

"Luxuriantly unhurried, intensely focused" (Thought Catalog) and “offering a glimpse of time outside of time” (I Care If You Listen), Gibson is known for performances of extreme duration. His 3.5 hour piano work The Four Pillars Appearing from The Equal D under Resonating Apparitions of The Eternal Process in The Midwinter Starfield, praised by The New York Times for its “arresting overtone clouds” and “dreamy, meditative visual accompaniment,” was named 2017 classical album of the year by Textura. Commissions for performance, dance, film, installation, and fixed media include works for Transit New Music Festival, Dia Art Foundation, Erik Carlson, R. Andrew Lee, Albert Cerulo, Kim Olson/Sweetedge, Ekmeles Vocal Ensemble, Scott Worthington, and The Tapeworm. In 2016, Gibson was awarded a NYFA fellowship in Music and Sound.

A long-time student of seminal pioneers of Minimal art La Monte Young and Marian Zazeela, Gibson continues to refine his ongoing theoretical work The Four Pillars into sprawling performance environments and objects that rigorously explore the potential of a precise set of numerical relationships while inviting stasis and reflection.
