Shimmer by D. Riley Nicholson

Shimmer is an electro-acoustic piano work by composer/pianist D. Riley Nicholson which will be premiered at the Center for New Music on January 28, 2018 and tour nationally in March 2018. Support for this project goes towards collaborating artists Robby Gilson (visual/set design), Zach Miley (sound/recording design), D. Riley Nicholson (composer/performer), and premiere/tour costs.

“To shimmer is to reflect a wavering or distorted visual image, to tremolo a fitful light. To shimmer is to flicker and allow the complexity of a beautiful light to evolve, to open up the possibility of an object viewed from multiple perspectives simultaneously. From a different angle, Nicholson explores Shimmer as a highly personal verb: We are remembered by how we reflected the light around us. We didn’t create our light, but we do choose to spread and magnify it in a myriad of directions. Shimmer reflects these ideas as a repetitive tremor of shaking, mesmerizing, aural glare.”
