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."

Pianist R. Andrew Lee is one of the foremost interpreters of minimal music, for which he has garnered wide critical acclaim. He has been described as having “consistently impressive solo releases… asserting a vision of musical Minimalism far broader than the limited patch that abused term usually signifies.” (Steve Smith, New York Times). Time Out New York named his album November as the best classical recording of 2013, and Alex Ross of The New Yorker named Eva-Maria Houben: Piano Music as one of the most notable recordings of the year. He returns to Seattle to present two evenings of newly commissioned music presented by Nonsequitur.

Tonight, over the three-plus hour immersive drone experience of Randy Gibson‘s The Four Pillars Appearing from The Equal D under Resonating Apparitions of The Eternal Process in The Midwinter Starfield, Lee will explore the overtone content of each D on the piano, in combinations and alone, creating, with the aid of electronics, a visceral whirling mass of tones from which melodies and rhythms can soar to the stars.
