Morning Concert:
Criss x Cross by Jon Gibson

Listen
Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 24 min
Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: KPFA

Jon Gibson performs three movements from his five movement, 1979, composition, “Criss x Cross,” after which he discusses the piece with program host, Charles Amirkhanian. This somewhat aleatoric work apparently follows a score in which the notes are indicated without any rhythmic instructions, and much of the phrasing and duration of the notes is improvised. The work is influenced by Gibson’s interest in bagpipe music and the pibrochs of the Scottish Highlands, although one can also see parallels to the minimal music style made popular by Philip Glass, and others. Although it is uncertain, it seems likely that this particular performance features a solo soprano saxophone, or some sort of flute.
