Niblock’s Sound Spectrums: Within Invisible Rivers
Niblock’s Sound Spectrums: Within Invisible Rivers (2019, 1hr 50min) plunges us into the practice of Phill Niblock, a musician on the American minimalist scene and video artist who combines many of his soundscapes with video compositions. Punctuated by numerous testimonials (Jim O’Rourke, David Watson, Charlemagne Palestine, Eliane Radigue, Myriam Gourfink, Stephen O’Malley…), the film will transport us between drone and experimental cinema. Phill Niblock, 89 years old and still working, is a self-taught artist now considered a pioneer of the multimedia arts. Thomas Maury made this film over eight years in the footsteps of this tireless nomadic composer.
