Used Parts Galaxy :: Vale Jon Gibson 19th Oct 2020

Since the mid-1960s, Jon Gibson played a key role in the development of American avant-garde music. As a versatile reed player, he performed with everyone from Steve Reich and Philip Glass to Terry Riley and La Monte Young. In the 1970s, Gibson would emerge as a minimalist composer in his own right and release two exceptional albums, Visitations and Two Solo Pieces, on Glass’ Chatham Square imprint. Sadly he passed away recently at the age of 80 after complications from a brain tumor. We honour his legacy on this edition of the program and will play his stellar work from 1974 in Two Solo Pieces.
