Gig Information

UPDATE: It is with great regret that due to circumstances beyond Altmusic's control Keith (Fullerton) Whitman's tour of NZ is now cancelled – we offer our unreserved apologies to all artists and venues who generously committed themselves to this tour and hope to see Keith Whitman perform in NZ at a later date. Unfortunately the forces of nature (ie. Hurricane Sandy) imposed themselves and ultimately prevented a much anticipated tour! Please note that the PUPPIES show in Wellington will still be happening with new headliner Signer - as will the PHYSICS ROOM show in Christchurch featuring Adam Willetts and special guests tba. All ticket sales will be reimbursed in full.

Thank you on behalf of Altmusic and the Audio Foundation, please contact admin AT if you have further inquiries.


Altmusic is proud to present Keith (Fullerton) Whitman (US) as part of Altmusics programme of independent & adventurous international musicians touring New Zealand in 2012.

Keith Whitman is an electronic musician based in Massachusetts (US). Whitmans work travels towards the outer borders of electronic psychotropia – ferrying listeners through expertly crafted, cascading rivers of analogue/digital sound. Occupying the boundaries of Terry Riley-esque pulsing minimalism, ambient noise and improvised electronica, Keith Whitmans superbly textured, near-sculptural detail plunges listeners into trancelike states where deep listening is infinitely rewarded with a microverse of sound. Whitmans intensively researched knowledge of the history of electronica is reflected in his utterly personal approach to electronic music – this show will be a dont miss performance by an international master.

“Whitman has an uncanny knack for taking the analog soundmakers and ring modulators of yore and applying his precise and detailed theoretical constructs to something that sounds, above all, musical.” - Pitchfork
“Hes one of the few musicians capable of grasping electronic music in its entirety, narrating how it warps and feeds back into itself... Whitmans music taps into any sound event you can imagine, with a view to control, to play, to understand.” - The Wire magazine

Since the mid-nineties Keith Whitman has recorded under a large variety of pseudonyms including Hrvatski and ASCIII, releasing albums via Planet Mu and others. Recent notable recordings under his own name include the acclaimed Generators (Mego Editions - 2012) and Lisbon (Kranky - 2006).
