Join us for the launch of Working Title, a monograph on the avant-garde musician, filmmaker, and performer Phill Niblock. Written in both French and English, the book provides an in-depth look at Niblock’s musical and cinematographic work, as well as historical background, philosophical insights and technical advice. The book is accompanied by two double-sided DVDs of atypical videos: Remo Osaka, a continuation of The Movement of People Working series; two separate DVDs of the Anecdotes from Childhood; and Katherine Liberovskaya’s 70 for 70 (+1), Seventy (one) Sides of Phill Niblock.

The evening includes screenings of Anecdotes, Remo Osaka, and 70 for 70 (+1) and a live performance of Two Lips, a piece written by Niblock and recorded in 2011 by three different guitar quartets. At MIT, Two Lips will be played by students from the Berklee Interdisciplinary Arts Institute under the direction of Neil Leonard: Yun Yun Huang, Andrew Ikenberry, Jason Lim, Aseem Suri, and William Wingnall.
Phill Niblock is a New York-based minimalist composer, multi-media musician, and filmmaker, as well as the director of the Experimental Intermedia Foundation, an intermedia arts collective founded in the late 1960s in New York.
This project is presented in collaboration with the MIT List Visual Arts Center.
