Distant Pillars, Private Pillars

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.
The Four Pillars Appearing from The Equal D under Resonating Apparitions of The Eternal Process in The Midwinter Starfield 16 VIII 10 (Kansas City)
2017 | 3CD Set and Digital Download
Gibson's landmark work for equal tempered piano and harmonic resonators. Recorded and commissioned by R. Andrew Lee.
Gone is the goal directed trajectory of Western harmonic practice, and in its place is the timelessness of the now. Gone is the moment-by-moment expression of surface emotion, and in its place is the revolutionary power of sound as it moves around and through you, its vibrations literally reshaping your physical and spiritual being.
The First Pillar Appearing In Supernova
2014 | Cassette
The two sides of The First Pillar Appearing in Supernova could be considered as opposing explorations of the simplest section of the ongoing work, Apparitions Of The Four Pillars.
Aqua Madora V-ii-2008 21:07:26" - 21:54:40" (NYC)
2011 | Digital Download | Limited and Hand-Embellished CDs
Aqua Madora is Gibson's iconic first work for Just Intonation Piano, released from a 2008 live performance of the work.
Deeply inspired by my studies with La Monte Young and Marian Zazeela, and indebted to the example of Young's The Well-Tuned Piano, this work has come to be the seminal work from my pre-Apparitions period
Aqua Madora was described by Textura as "a ponderous and spacious ... meditation, the generous spaces between the notes enabling the sine tones to once again be heard."
2010 | Cassette
Gibson's seminal cassette for The Tapeworm, now long out of print. Each side is a distinct composition that can be considered a subset of , Apparitions of The Four Pillars; a single facet, a microcosm of the work itself. This release was called "a gorgeously expansive dronescape" by the inimitable Aquarius Records.
