Composer, filmmaker and photographer Phill Niblock, who runs the Experimental Intermedia Foundation in New York, writes noble, hypnotic, majestic music constituted of sustained sounds for large instrumental ensembles of the same family (e.g. all strings, all flutes, all trombones, etc.) that very gradually change their timbre and pitch characteristics (pieces such as “Four Full Flutes”, “Early Winter” for massed strings, “Didjeridoos”, and “Five More Strings Quartets”).
