Keith Fullerton Whitman creates,
including this release
and 42 back-catalog releases,
delivered instantly to you via the Bandcamp app for iOS and Android.
First in a series of releases documenting my experiments with creating "Augmented Realities" - named in deference to Anestis Logothetis' "Necrologlog" - issuing vastly reconfigured & transformed studio, location, & performance recordings. Each disc is individually numbered & comes inside a vellum envelope containing a 6-panel "Gatefold" booklet presenting geographically & thematically relevant imagery.
Includes unlimited streaming of Vittorio
via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.
"Vittorio" folds a series of sonifications of photographs of the grisly war-memorial sculptures out in front of the Commune di Vittorio Veneto in & around a recording of a performance given at the Codalunga space on October 12th, 2014.
The result of a process-music experiment with a reciprocal, "Round Trip" side-chained feedback routing, the difference-tone-heavy, low-end drone created through the transformation from image to sound weaves in & around the concert audio - at times completely obliterating it, at others giving way to the mid & high-range elements - before nestling into the evenly rhythmic & melodic segment that closed out the concert itself.
Musically, it's far darker & way more spaced-out than anything I've issued in some time - somewhere between Roland Kayn's long-form "Cybernetic" work & both the geographically apropos lurch of Maurizio "M.B." Bianchi & any number of late-70s / early 80s Giallo scores - enjoy.
