Description

The Sherman Box Series originated as part of
an exhibition by visual artist Christine Krol at Abaton Gallery, Jersey
City, NJ that ran from August through September 2005. The work in this
show was selected from Krol's ongoing series of collages constructed
out of Nat Sherman cigarette boxes, as well as small paintings on wood
panels. In his contribution to the exhibition, Pat Gubler contributed
seven pieces consisting primarily of folk harp and electronic
processing played on a loop within the space of the gallery. These
pieces explore the sonic possibilities of the wire-strung harp and its
long sustaining tones, as well as the bray harp's sitar-like buzzing.
But unlike his previous song-based releases, Music for the Sherman Box Series and other works
exclusively showcases P.G. Six's training in modern composition,
especially his unique blending of twentieth-century minimalism and more
traditional folk-techniques.
In addition to the work Pat composed in conjunction with Krol's
pieces, this CD also includes "The Book of Rayguns" which marked P.G.
Six's solo-debut, a piece for six electric guitars that dates from 1994
and which was originally released as a seven-inch single on the Tower
Recordings' imprint, Superlux Records in 1995. This piece and the
album's final selection, "Cartographies for Piano," are a result of
Pat's studies with composer Dary John Mizelle at SUNY Purchase in the
early 90s.
