Vocal Tape Delay by Jon Gibson

Listen
Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 17 min
Event Type: Music  

Jon Gibson is an American composer, visual artist, and talented wind instrumentalist. He was an early collaborator with Steve Reich and a founding member of the Philip Glass Ensemble. Although well known for his work in jazz, minimal, and world music, Gibson was also an early experimenter with electronic music and frequently worked with such composers as Larry Austin and Stanley Lunetta. The work on this recording features extensive vocalizations of a wide variety. In the composer’s own words, taken from a 1972 concert program guide: "Voice/Tape Delay" happened spontaneously one night after an extended period of exploring various vocal sounds and techniques, Art Murphy had set up a tape delay on his own accord and without warning handed me the microphone asking me to try it out. This was the result.”
