Guest Blog: Keith Fullerton Whitman + Chris Madak (Bee Mask) + Discipline X meets Th W rbl r

by Alexi Katsanis My first exposure to the works of Keith Fullerton Whitman was with his 2001 release 21:30 For Acoustic Guitar. What is so interesting about this particular release is every sound on the album comes from an acoustic guitar, but a single sound one is identifiable as such guitar without understanding the album’s context. As the album progresses, tone after tone are delicately layered onto of each […]

Fluxus artist Nam June Paik’s use of prepared television sets in his 1963 installation “Exposition of Music – Electronic Television” is one of video art’s heroic moments.

Radu Malfatti

  Austrian composer and trombonist Radu Malfatti is among the leaders in redefining the avant-garde as truly on-the-edge art. Abandoning most improvisational music as too regulated, Malfatti has pushed the boundaries of composition into the realms of long reams of silence.

Malfatti was born in Innsbruck, Austria, in 1943 and played jazz in Amsterdam and Aachen. He moved to […]

The Stare Case players are long-term musical savages. They have ebbed, eked, and proliferated among the shadowed lines of musical habit and intuitive aesthetic necessity for years. So much have they enveloped their sounds in undefined parameters that they have bypassed any present-day artistic credence and taken the timeline of musical history, and methodology of music production, and transposed it.

Chris Madak (Bee Mask)

Bee Mask (est. 2004) is a project of Chris Madak and a vehicle for an intricate and deeply warped idea of modern electronic music which draws equally on the ecstatic human/machine couplings of 1970s west coast synthesis, the fractured gloss of sampler concrète, the iridescent thumbprint of High Minimalism on the humid throb of trunk bass, and […]
