Since the mid-1960s, Jon Gibson has played a key role in the development of American avant-garde music. No other artist has performed in the world premieres of Terry Rileys "In C," Steve Reichs "Drumming," and Philip Glass "Einstein on the Beach," three major works that changed the course of musical history. While his expertise on woodwind instruments made Gibson a go-to collaborator in Reichs, Glass, and La Monte Youngs ensembles, less known are his remarkable contributions as a composer and visual artist.

Visitations, Gibsons first release under his own name, originally appeared on the Chatham Square imprint in 1973. Inspired by the books of Carlos Castaneda, Gibson departs from the structured repetition of his minimalist peers and takes the listener on an aural journey - spanning organic field recordings, ambient flutes and synthesizers, and free-flowing textures. Visitations two side-long tracks are at once solemn and unsettling, making this an astonishing debut that firmly establishes Gibson as a pioneer in his own right.

This first-time vinyl reissue is recommended for fans of Cluster, Harold Budd and Phill Niblock.
