Keith Fullerton Whitman is a musician currently based in Cambridge, MA. Starting in the mid-1990′s while working on a “Music Synthesis” Degree at Boston’s Berklee College of Music, Keith began exploring electronic music’s many facets, eventually yielding dozens of full length albums, singles, remixes, and compilation appearances for influential labels such as Kranky, Editions Mego, PAN, Planet µ, Carpark, Room40, Amethyst Sunset, Amish, NNA Tapes, No Fun Productions, Agents of Chaos, Arbor, Digitalis Limited, Ekhein, Heavy Tapes, Rare Youth, Root Strata, and many more. These days his creative energies are largely put into the continued development of a truly “Live Electronic Music,” incorporating an ever-changing hardware-based modular system that allows for a complexity of sound & vision that had previously only been available via software-solutions. While this work has recently manifested itself as a pair of albums for Editions Mego entitled »Generators« & »Occlusions«, it’s largely intended for the stage.
