Tuesday, October 2, 7 p.m. at Control, Brooklyn:
Control presents Keith Fullerton Whitman for a live quad performance of two pieces, "Redactions" and "Generators."
Keith Fullerton Whitman is a composer, performer, and recording artist currently based in Melbourne, Australia. Active from the early 90's on while working towards a Bachelor's Degree in Music Synthesis at Boston's Berklee College of Music, Keith began exploring electronic music's many facets, eventually yielding dozens of recordings for influential labels such as Kranky, Editions Mego, PAN, Planet µ, Carpark, Room40, Amethyst Sunset, Amish, NNA Tapes, No Fun Productions, Agents of Chaos, Arbor, Digitalis Limited, Ekhein, Heavy Tapes, Rare Youth, Root Strata, and many more.
This evening showcases two pieces, "Redactions" and "Generators," from Whitman's current compositional development, a singular take on "Live Electronic Music" that incorporates an ever-changing, hybrid software & hardware-based system. On the piece titled "Generators," which manifested itself as an album released by Editions Mego in 2012, Whitman explained it was "an attempt to wrest a viable performance-based music out what had until then been a solitary set of sound-design tools. The piece grew out of a frustration with the limitlessness of computer-based real-time synthesis & algorithmic / generative systems vs. their utter failure as performance solutions." Though captured in an album form, "Generators" is largely intended for the live setting. "Redactions" is more recent performance composition that incorporates thematically & geographically relevant Musique Concrète elements into the modular setup and alongside the framework of "Generators."
The performance will promptly start at 7:15. Once the performance begins no entry will be permitted. Do not be late.
