"Keith Fullerton Whitman is not only far ahead of the rest of the
electronic world, he is paving the roads that others will soon be traveling
Keith Fullerton Whitman has recorded and released music under a number of pseudonyms, most notably Hrvatski. Hrvatski has appeared on more compilations than you can shake a stick at and criss-crossed the globe laying down breakbeat-concrete for the kids.
Keith's new solo endeavour, "Multiples", recorded during his tenure as
lecturer at Harvard University, fuses drifting drones with the mash-ups,
glitches, and sonic assaults of his previous works into one beautiful
cohesive work. "Multiples" also shows Whitman to be as adept and comfortable
in creating amazing textures with analog instruments as he is in using the
latest in digital sound design, making it seem like an eight-song cycle
paying homage to the electronic forefathers, such as Stockhausen and
Schaeffer, while pushing the envelope for his contemporaries whom he has
aligned himself with – [b:15ea7575df]Kid 606[/b:15ea7575df],[b:15ea7575df] V/VM[/b:15ea7575df], [b:15ea7575df]Sh1tmat[/b:15ea7575df]. The eight tracks on Multiples flow through hi-hat shimmer to skull-scraping electronic tones to interlocking clusters of repetition.
[b:15ea7575df]Keith will perform his solo works and that of his alter-ego – "Hrvatski" -
at The Bunker (Laverys Middle Bar) on the 14th of September. [/b:15ea7575df]
Support comes from two staples of pioneering local net-label [url=http://www.electrotoxic.com]www.electrotoxic.com[/url], Filaria and Iso9
David Baxter aka Filaria has been melting our heads with hectic acid inflected synthetic music that's equally crammed with ideas and emotion for a long time now, and not content with this has started incorporating clarinet, bass guitar, drums, and many other instruments into his tracks and live shows.
Schizoid beatmeister and seasoned performer, David Baxter makes electronic music mostly of an abstract and sometimes melodic nature trying hard to keep it in an original and improvised manner.
Filaria have opened for the likes of Venetian Snares and Plaid.
If you're a fan of Matmos, Mouse On Mars, Kid606, Sh1mate or V/VM - check this out. Keith's performances are a rarity on these shores and a combined KFW/Hrvatski set promises to be a bit special - listen to the MP3s in the first post
