Keith Fullerton Whitman + Pierce Warnecke
We look for him, and Keith Fullerton Whitman is everywhere. The American can very well allege that his residence in Melbourne, in distant antipodean Australia, should make us think that his cycle of power has been extinguished. A mistake: since the mid-90s, with his given name or under the alias Hrvastski – nom de plumefor his extremist pseudonym – he has expanded electronica’s horizons, between tonal ambient and compley sonic networks with modular synths. Accepting a commission from Semibreve, Whitman will collaborate with Pierce Warnecke to retrieve ideas and ideals from op-art and minimalism, exploring the sound and video synthesis in a sensorial choreographic synchronicity.
