Randy Gibson is a composer and performer living and working in New York City. He works with structure, evolutionary compositional models, and improvisation to create enveloping and ritualistic works in just intonation.Gibson combines live and electronic music, as well as aspects of the world music he has studied, most importantly Raga singing in the Kirana tradition with La Monte Young and Marian Zazeela, but also Balinese and Japanese music.
By presenting his work with visual elements and the markers of ritual (incense, lighting) Gibson is able to offer the audience a way into the right frame of mind to embrace stillness and become absorbed in the sound.
Major works include Doleo Æternus (A new composition created using the parameters of Raga), Aqua Madora (for Just Intonation Piano and Sine Waves), and the ever-evolving Apparitions of The Four Pillars
Gibson began his musical training at the age of six studying percussion. In the summer of 1998, he traveled to Japan to study marimba with the great Keiko Abe. In early 2003, Gibson began composition studies in New York with seminal Minimalist pioneer La Monte Young. Continually humbling and revelatory, his studies with Young have brought greater clarity to his work, and reinforced his aesthetic convictions.
