Includes the Composition:
Distant Pillars, Private Pillars, the new album by Randy Gibson, is the manifestation of a decade working closely with musicians to create a deep droning sound world. Distant Pillars, Private Pillars will be released on November, 20, 2020 on Galtta Media as a digital download and an edition of 49 double CDs.
In this new work, Gibson positions his carefully honed tunings within a setting of birds, traffic, and the sounds of daily life recorded personally by all of the musicians involved in their personal spaces around the country. Responding to the new paradigms of pandemic life, the work celebrates the sounds we hear around us and the individuality of the spaces we each inhabit. Assembled by Gibson from nearly 20 hours of source recordings, the album features recorded performances from Jen Baker, Meaghan Burke, Erik Carlson, Carlos Cordeiro, David Lackner, William Lang, and Mariel Roberts.
