Keith Fullerton Whitman & Ikue Mori @ Issue Project Room 6/15

It will be an evening of high-art electronics Friday at Brooklyn's Issue Project Room. 8:00 pm, $10.

Synthesizer whiz Keith Fullerton Whitman (AKA HrvÄtski) has been extraordinarily eclectic in his output in the last few years, issuing work ranging from techno-influenced dance music to experimental minimalism. He is in the midst of composing his first "through-composed long-form work...for Egyptian Oud, Serge and Doepfer Analog Modular Synthesizers, and computer control/processing." Hopefully he'll preview some of it Friday.

Ikue Mori began her musical career acting as drummer for late-1970s NY No-Wave trio DNA, where she developed her unique asymmetrical skin-beating style. She has since shaped herself into a composer, and has performed with many NY-based avant-gardists (including John Zorn, Kim Gordon, & Bill Frisell) over the past 30 years. Having largely abandoned live drumming in lieu of an array of programmed drum machines & samplers, Mori remains on the cutting edge of electronic & experimental musics.
