Keith Fullerton Whitman is a musician based in Cambridge, MA. His current work is split into two avenues: 1) Live Electronic Music: largely improvised and/or performed in loose, through-composed or “automatic” frameworks on an array of hardware modular synthesis equipment; 2) Studio Music: largely concerned with the transformation of acoustic and electronic materials via Musique Concrète techniques, but also with systems. Active as a performer of real-time computer music (as Hrvatski) since the mid-nineties, he later turned to computer-processed instrumental music and a variety of hardware-based synthesis and process-oriented musics. Whitman graduated from the Berklee College of Music with a Bachelor’s Degree in Music Synthesis in 1995. He has since lectured in Computer Music and History of Electronic Music and gave artist talks at Harvard, Dartmouth, Johns Hopkins, and The School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
