￭ KEITH FULLERTON WHITMAN ￭
Keith Fullerton Whitman is a composer & musician currently based in Melbourne, Australia. Beginning in the early 90's 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, Room40, NNA Tapes, No Fun Productions, Digitalis Limited, Root Strata, and many more. These days his creative energies are largely put into the continued development of a singular take on "live electronic music" incorporating an ever-changing hybrid software & hardware-based system that allows for the desired complexities of sound & vision.
Over the past 20 years, Keith has given over 500 performances of his music - everything from solemn held-tones to pointillist reckless-abandon - at venues ranging from "punk" basements to some of the most celebrated European & North-American festival stages. He has collaborated both on stage & record with Oren Ambarchi, Caboladies, Rhys Chatham, Tony Conrad, Greg Davis, Frans de Waard, Deerhunter, JD Emmanuel, Lawrence English, Mark Fell, Robin Fox, David Grubbs, Glenn Jones, Michael Karoli & Malcolm Mooney (Can), Eli Keszler, Felix Kubin, Okkyung Lee, Alan Licht, Matmos, Norbert Möslang, Geoff Mullen, Benjamin Nelson, Charlemagne Palestine, Terry Riley, Joel Ryan, Jessica Rylan, Uwe Schmidt, TV Pow, Ben Vida, Nate Wooley, C. Spencer Yeh, and countless others.
