|Keith Fullerton Whitman: 21:30 for Acoustic Guitar (APTB002)|
|The Wire, September 2001|
Better known to the world as Hrvatski, Keith Fullerton Whitman offers a beautiful diversion to his "Amen" based drill 'n' bass productions with the terse 21:30 For Acoustic Guitar, Inspired by Terry Rilery's Timelag Accumulator, which looped sound back upon itself to conjure hypnotic dislocations, Whitman ran an acoustic guitar through his laptop and a four-head tape delay machine. With the computer filtering out all frequencies except the root tones from the guitar and the constant modulation of very slowly decaying echo patterns from the delay effects, Whitman has updated the Frippertronics of No Pussyfooting for an audience schooled in Aphex Twin's Selected Ambient Works Vol 2. The repetetive blips generated through the computer resonate with the insistent strum of the guitar, but manifest tonalities that weightlessly float in clusters of shimmering particles blown outward in a slow motion aerosol dispersion.

Long-awaited second * release of the new electro- Ni mosquito * label and apartment
B of New York which is known by the fact that that ???? is excavated. It is what,
but you see and it is the name which is not accustomed to tell the truth the
Reckankreuzungsklankewerkzeuge (being to be long even excessively, recently having
named the Reckankomplex, you can laugh) changed name of the ?????? which is
led (autonym?) So, being upper with the ?????? name, the person the ? ? it is
with the hard core sound (?? * ????? extolment!) Vis-a-vis, with this way
administering delicate DSP processing to shunning the ???, being very delicate,
it builds up beautiful minimal electronic sound. It consists of the music 2 tune
about of 10 minutes, but hearing longer, it becomes greatly. It probably is
the feeling, digital edition of the ti fluorine of the French * ? * word? (A)

Keyt Of fullerton Whitman, who lets out his blasting breykbit under the pseudonym
Of yurvatski , he recently published 20 minutes of acoustic gitarnoy music. this
two tracks, improvised for one evening into the 1999- ohm to year. The original
was released by the print run in all into 20 copies, and now - remastirovannoe
publication for the mass market, as it is written on the cover.
It is possible to assume that these are the sufficiently simply arranged gitarnye
tints, which were subjected to diverse transformations on the computer. If 4 I
correctly understand commentaries, then computer identified the pitch of tone and
governed/controlled the generator of sine wave, i.e., simply stated, by the
whistle (but on the scientific - by resynthesis of sound). Some layers of sound
are obtained by frequency shift of base layer upward or downward... plus
reverberation... plus the unnamed effects.
As a result came out multilayer minimalistichnaya moire cloth. In the first track
the timbre of guitar still can be recognized, in the second - only unsteady
electronic sea, which, with strange means, sounds sufficiently stressed.
