[Dec 8/10/17 Jan 7/14/21] Philip White 7.1 mix of new album Documents

Philip White has created a 7.1 mix of “20140704-15 A Night in Tunisia” from his new album on Infrequent Seams Documents. It is a piece about intuition and the recursive influences inherent in memory. I subject the recording to a a series of processes through which I derive musical information (harmonic, melodic, timbral, rhythmic, formal, etc). That information drives a set of voltage controlled amplifiers tied into a non-linear feedback system, influencing the behavior of the system and leaving a shadow of the original work.

Philip White has created a 7.1 mix of “20140704-15 A Night in Tunisia” from his new album on Infrequent Seams Documents. It is a piece about intuition and the recursive influences inherent in memory. When I was 18 Art Blakey’s seminal recording of “A Night in Tunisia” worked its way into my psyche in a way that comes out every time I perform, compose, or listen to music.

“I subject the recording to a a series of processes through which I derive musical information (harmonic, melodic, timbral, rhythmic, formal, etc). That information drives a set of voltage controlled amplifiers tied into a non-linear feedback system, influencing the behavior of the system and leaving a shadow of the original work. Documents, and this recording in particular, is an attempt to reveal and subvert the influence of assumptions/intuitions in music making. ”

Based on data extracted from sections of the work examines intuition and the recursive nature of memory.

Philip White:

Composer, performer and improviser Philip White works with electronics at the intersection of noise, jazz and contemporary concert music. Current projects include R WE WHO R WE (with Ted Hearne), Colonic Youth (with James Igenfritz, Kevin Shea and Dan Blake) and duos with Chris Pitsiokos and Taylor Levine.

His music has been released on New Focus Recordings, Infrequent Seams and Tape Drift Records. It has been described as “utterly gripping” (Time Out Chicago), “innervating and annihilating” (Villiage Voice) and a “vibrant textural tapestry” (Wall Street Journal).

He’s received awards and residencies from the Electronic Music Foundation, Harvestworks, High Concept Labs and the Rensing Center.
