Keith Fullerton Whitman

http://soundcloud.com/kfw/generator-6-g ... -2-excerpt

this is an excerpt from keith fullerton whitman's album "generator", which has been on constantly since i got it a few months ago. it's a really fantastic modular album. i remember hearing his hrvatski records years ago, then seeing that he's the man behind mimaroglu (awesome record store), and now that he's been making some subtle, wonderful, exciting modular music.

just thought i'd share.

Generator is a pretty cool album.

I've really enjoyed what I've heard of the oud and synthesizer record he did, too bad it isn't available for purchase as a download anywhere, I'd love to get it.

He has an excerpt up on his soundcloud of it:

(embedding Soundcloud link was doing weird things, so here's just the link)

Keith is a Wiggler as well. Not very active, but he's around. Bought a couple of A110's from me last year off of the BST. Generator is terrific.

I like Keith's work.

There is a really great live video where the camera is right on the table, but I cant find it anymore.

This might be the video you're speaking of -

I can't get enough of KFW. He's an inspiration. I only wish I could see his piece for Francois Bayle's Acousmonium in Austria later this year.

Would love to see him back to Australia in the near future.

I've been listening to Generator almost non-stop for a week or so now. I'd love to get my hands on Disingenuity!

Just wanted to resurrect this thread to share my excitement.
KFW has a new record of the Generators material coming out in February on Editions Mego.

Many thanks, Keith. Really looking forward to hearing this one.

Shit, I'll grabbing that next LP quicksmart!

The split he did with Ben Vida out on Required Wreckers is also ace.

If you can find it (i think he still sells a few at Mimaroglu), pick up "Track4 (twowaysuperimposed)". Beautiful 20 min piece designed to be played both directions.
Form and void.

hey guys ; just (re) found this thread ... just a heads-up that i've (finally) updated my personal site ::

http://www.keithfullertonwhitman.com

... tons of excerpts from the upcoming record(s ; the emego one & the split w/ eli keszler on nna tapes) & the GRM piece (hacked it to "work" in stereo - likely this will be out in some form before the end of the year) & the music from the deepak chopra game (ditto) ...

... have plans to kind of come out of my shell a little bit more this year ; i'll be in europe in february, then april, then july - west coast over the summer, chicago in march - so there's that ... traveling light with just a monorocket mx6, but i've managed to come up with some great, largely improvised music with a stripped-down 12u 90hp that screams over a good "rock club" pa ...

anyways, check out the site & let me know what you think. i'm really not a dick ; i spend way too much time on here (even though i don't post much) ...

i'm pretty much on the edge of my seat waiting for that split with eli keszler. that's sort of a dream pairing right there, and the sample on the site is great.

I didn’t make the connection until recently, but a few months back I made a largish order from Mimaroglu, and I’ve got another heading to me thru the mail right now. Both transaction have gone well, and the online catalog is well worth a look.
