Electronic musician and composer Keith Fullerton Whitman performs Ezra Pound Redactions, as part of Damon Krukowski: NOT TO BE PLAYED. The exhibition includes enlarged digital scans from the delaminated master disc of Pound’s 1939 readings. Fullerton processes data from the scans through his analog-modular system to create complex sounds and real-time sonorizations.

Keith Fullerton Whitman is a musician currently based in Cambridge, MA. Fullerton’s work continues to develop truly “live electronic music," that incorporates an ever-changing hardware-based modular system that allows for a complexity of sounds that had previously only been available via software-solutions. Starting in the mid-1990's while working on a "Music Synthesis" Degree at Boston's Berklee College of Music, Keith began exploring electronic music's many facets, eventually yielding dozens of full length albums, singles, remixes, and compilation appearances for influential labels such as Kranky, Editions Mego,PAN, Planet µ, Carpark, Room40, Amethyst Sunset, Amish, NNA Tapes, No Fun Productions, Agents of Chaos, Arbor, Digitalis Limited, Ekhein, Heavy Tapes, Rare Youth, Root Strata, and many more.
