keith fullerton whitmanplaythroughs” compact disc

  • track 3a (2waynice) (5:30)
  • feedback zwei (10:01)
  • fib01a (8:01)
  • acgtr svp (9:05)
  • modena (17:02)
october 2002 release ; at long last, here’s my debut album under my “real” name, reflecting 10 years of computer-guitar sound research, having nothing to do aesthetically with the hrvatski output (hence the use of my xian given) ... this is more the logical progression of the experiments witnessed on the “21:00 for acoustic guitar” ep on apartment b & kicks off a proposed trilogy of albums (“playthroughs”, “multiples”, “generators”) exploring more “compositionalideas (hey, i have to put my bachelor’s in music synthesis & composition to use somehow) ...

not exclusively comprised of pitch-tracking guitar pieces however (for example: feedback zwei is composed of 34 channels of electric guitar feedback ; acgtr svp is all strummed acoustic guitar chords) ... but that’s the theme. i’m quite happy with the way this record turned out, and it’s by far the least jarring of my recorded output ; let these pristine digital undulations lull you into an alpha-state ...

ps. here’s the video for “modena”, from this very album ::

kranky press release...

artist: keith fullerton whitman
title: playthroughs
catalog #: krank055
formats available: cd
release date: october 21, 2002

the source material for every piece on playthroughs is guitar : acoustic, electric or otherwise. from sept. 2001 to april 2002, keith fullerton whitman transformed raw guitar tones via laptop computer into the tracks on playthroughs.

whitman has used ring modulators, granular re-synthesis algorithms, banks of delays and special effects in a process that owes much to terry riley's time lag accumulator setup and steve reich's phase pieces.

technology and whitman's careful selection of notes combine to create shimmering drones and deep waves of sound. though the source material was improvised guitar and the processing involved computer technology, playthroughs reflects whitman's mastery of composition.

matador press release...
'the civil war' is the new album by san francisco electronic duo matmos. a hallucinatory double exposure of medieval english folk and 19th century americana, the civil war finds matmos experimenting with a dramatically different palette from their critically acclaimed exploration of medical technology 'a chance to cut is a chance to cure'. though there's nary a scalpel in sight, their humorous cut-up sensibility and willingness to take risks remains intact. in a time when most electronic artists seem desperate to ape the sounds of 1983 as closely as possible, matmos have tried to make the 2003 version of the 1990 version of the 1968 version of the 1860 version of the 1590s. across the nine tracks on 'the civil war', production styles and instrumentation keep telescoping backwards and projecting forwards, producing weirdly anachronistic dialogues: medieval jigs and reels joust against country and western twang, and pastoral acoustic folk gets pistolwhipped by crisp digital editing techniques.a guerilla assault on rock, folk, and country maneuvers, 'the civil war' keeps lines of communication open across genres and periods. if the opener "regicide"'s keening hurdy gurdy recalls the incredible string band's psychedelic medievalism,the ambling piano line of "for the trees" sounds like a distant cousin of honky tonk pianist floyd cramer's swooning instrumentals. songs mutate and reverse direction: "y.t.t.e" starts with tumbling big band drums that recall iggy pop's "lust for life", gatecrashes a boredoms drumcircle, lilts into chet atkins twang, and finally scuttles to a close in minimalist soundfile manipulation. deceptively "pretty" on the surface, it's music that struggles against itself and occasionally collapses, breaking down into amorphous skeins of noise, dissolving into raw field recordings of cicadas in the trees and fourth of july fireworks, and, in "pelt and holler", unexpectedly jump-cutting to total silence. while much of this album's focus on untreated and close mic-ed acoustic instruments suggest a pickin' session on a southern porch, the mellowness is peppered with peaks of scaldingly bright and extreme sonics. on this recording m. c. schmidt and guest member keith fullterton whitman (aka hrvatski) had the opportunity to use one of the original serge modular synthesizers built by ivan tcherepnin; its piercing squeals ricochet across the military drumrolls of "reconstruction".as their compositional appetite grew more ambitious and expansive, matmos decided to bring in more musically gifted reinforcements from across america. among others, steve goodfriend and jim putnam of radar bros. sit in on drums and guitar respectively, jay lesser plucked the dobro, tim barnes offered drum source samples, improv guitar manipulator keenan lawler ventured into the sewer pipes of louisville, kentucky for a subterranean steel guitar recording, fellow louisville alumnus david grubbs contributed piano, with a little coaxing blevin blectum added violin, and, providing the lion's share of guest contributions, mark lightcap (formerly of acetone, now playing with hope sandoval) played tuba, peck horn, banjo, and heaps of electric and acoustic guitar. that said, matmos' trademark ear for highly unorthodox sample sources endures: "pelt and holler" is made almost entirely out of the sound of a rabbit pelt, while "the struggle against unreality begins" features the sound of the blood in m. c. schmidt's carotid artery.balancing baroquely detailed production against passages of stark single-instrument simplicity, matmos have pushed themselves in an unexpected, and surprisingly tuneful, new direction. part canterbury tale and part southern gothic, 'the civil war' eludes easy categories but rewards careful listening, responding to present tensions with historical imagination and sly wit.

keith fullerton whitman
track4 (twowaysuperimposed)

over the past few years, keith fullerton whitman has been responsible for producing some of the most engaging electronic music to emerge from the united states. informed by traditional musique concréte as much as contemporary dsp, his work remains provocative without relying on overt actions or grandiose sonic statements. for his upcoming tour of australia, whitman issues this bass heavy journey through processed guitar and electronics – a refined statement of intent from one of the usa's finest. (lawrence english)

"here’s a 10:32 piece from 2002, re-worked, turned into a 21:04 piece in late 2005, released in spring of 2006 to correspond with my second australian tour. much like "track3a (2waynice)" (the first piece on the "playthroughs" album), this piece is entirely bi-directional, meaning that it plays the same forwards as backwards (just try to get your head around that...) by far the most woofer-rattling piece of music i've ever made..."

lasse marhaugspaghetti western rainbow” compact disc

  • spaghetti western rainbow (redux)
  • i quattro dell’apoclalisse oro hondo
  • the endless gundown
note: this is a proper, replicated cd-edition, re-issuing this now-classic lasse marhaug session with bonus materials (including a piece done in something of a mail-collaboration with... myself... late last year)

here’s the blurb i originally wrote regarding the cd-r edition:


here’s a nice edition of a september 2004 wnur-fm radio set from norway’s leading bringer of doom, lasse marhaug. lasse completists (of which there are many, certainly enough to justify a larger pressing of this than 50) will want to note that this is, as far as i can tell, the first solo live marhaug release (there have been a few jazzkammer live things, notably the one w/merzbow recorded @ a molde a few years back). taking a step back from recent brutal/all-sound ventures, lasse here dips into a collection of found-sounds and fx, mish-mashing them this way and that, rendering what could be considered a “musical” piece (esp. given the context). i haven’t had this fun listening to what is ostensibly a “noise” record since the merzbow/cock espmusic for man with no name” 7” on fusetron (which shares a similar love for leone/morricone-lineage twang). more proof that mr. marhaug is and continues to be one of the most vital voices in contemporary sound ...
utech press release...
artist: lasse marhaug
title: spaghetti western rainbow
format: cd
edition: 1000
length: 55'
trx: 4
catalogue number: urcd002
released: october 21, 2006
recorded:
chicago / boston / bergen / oslo.
final mix > oslo > june 6, 2006.

hailing from the land of the rising snow, lasse marhaug has become one of the most commanding and respected sound artists in norway. as a musician and composer he has contributed to cd, vinyl and cassette releases for labels throughout europe, asia and america. aside from solo work, marhaug contributes to several ensembles including nash kontroll (ideal) and a large jazkamer unit (smalltown supernoise) with black metal legends enslaved. having collaborated with artists from varying fields of musik (sunn o))), aaron dilloway and maja ratkje) marhaug's reach extends into musik for theatre, installations and video.

a salvo to ennio morricone, spaghetti western rainbow stands testament to the italian composer's enduring influence. morricone collaborator sergio leone established the spaghetti western genre in 1964 with a fistful of dollars. the director used morricone again to score the remaining two films in his three-part account of greed and violence (for a few dollars more and the good, the bad and the ugly.) leone's critics were struck by his brutal depiction of an unromantic west, but his singular style, camera angles and extension of time made his work different from any western that had come before. lasse marhaug exacts leone's slow, beautiful power and love for expanse with shades of morricone's subtle witchery to create what will inevitably be considered one of his masterworks. harsh, dry passages blend with drifting soundscapes, bird calls and an asseverate guitar figure that promotes an invigorating context for film musik.

issued on utech records [001] as a micro pressing of 100 cdr copies in the winter of 2004. lasse marhuag first performed this music as an improvised laptop work for chicago radio station wnur. this edition finds the original piece remastered and divided into two tracks that open and close the album. two unreleased pieces recorded in boston, bergen and oslo have been added as bonus tracks. various source material contributed by keith fullerton whitman. artwork inspired by the film "the great silence."

spring 2007 compilation of “idiosyncratic” music curated by yannick franck... includes music by a pretty damn excellent selection of contemporary drone/repetition practitioners ranging from the minimalist swell of charlemagne palestine to the munged roar of lasse marhaug & jon hegre’s jazkamer to steffen basho-junghan’s ringing steel-string figures...

various artists : idioscapes 2007
digipack / 1000 copies

“the idea was to ask some of our favourite sound artists to take part in a compilation... and, to our surprise, they accepted. the only concept was that they had to provide a specific / particular / idiosyncratic piece. qualified as a drone paradise by lasse marhaug (of jazkamer), the result is a fine and coherent whole, full of extended textures, contrasted acoustic surfaces, subtle and strong. idioscapes contains 70 minutes of authentic acoustic researches, with glitches, loops, noises, deep and glittering textures, subliminal frequences and narrative inserts, punctured with sensible musical moments. idiosyncratics is honoured to present these sound masters on idioscapes. infinite thanks to all of them.” y.f.

black faction
reworked cd
vivo 2002 005 cd

the original intention of this album was to feature a few remixes from the previous black faction album internal dissident part - 1 released on soleilmoon recordings, however as things developed thru lots of email conversations with other musicians it developed into a full on project spanning a number of artists from various disciplines within the global contemporary music scene.

whilst attempting to stay relevant to the previous recordings in the similar vein, those who enjoyed the internal dissident will enjoy what is being delivered here. black faction have mixed up and reconstructed the works to ebb and flow in the stylistic manner has many times in the past delivered on his previous works. the album has a similar structure, and much like internal dissident it carries the same 'sound magnifique soundmark' that is black faction. the accent into purgatory or not is another matter.. thou it must be said this is very much a continuation of the same imitable style of dieys production, albeit generously helped along by his fellow souls... let the journey continue......
