Disingenuity b/w Disingenuousness
(Pan - PAN13) LP $27.00 (Out-of-stock)
The two pieces of forward-thinking electronic music on Whitman’s first full length record in four years use as source material live and studio recordings from the past two years (Cambridge, New York, Toronto), which were then realized into longform compositions. Using a Musique Concrète approach of deconstructed sounds, Disingenuity b/w Disingenuousness are tape-collage pieces derived from an hour-long improvisation based around a setup involving a tape of chance field-recordings (a helicopter, walking on snow, children) bounced to a mono Nagra tape machine, which is covered in contact mics that translate not just the sound coming from the speakers, but the actual mechanical "interface" of the unit into control voltage and triggers that drive a modular synth that's processing said audio using the classic electronic music toolkit (i.e. ring modulation, panning VCAs, filters, etc.). 140-gram vinyl, color jacket, silkscreened PVC sleeve. Edition of 500.
