Philip White for Live Constructions

Sunday, February 12, 2017 - 10:00pm to 11:00pm
Tune in to Live Constructions Sunday, February 12 from 10:00-11:00 PM EST for an exclusive in-studio live set and interview with Brooklyn-based musician Philip White. Working with an array of homemade electronics at the intersection of noise, jazz and contemporary concert music, White is known for his ecstatic intensity and expressive sonic palette that exploits the tension between rigorous, closed electronic systems and the urgency of human compulsion.

In addition to his solo work (“bona fide evocative music,” Brooklyn Rail, “vibrant textural tapestry” (Wall Street Journal) current projects include R WE WHO R WE with Ted Hearne (“utterly gripping” Time Out Chicago) and a duo with Chris Pitsiokos (“annihilating and enervating” Village Voice).

In addition to several international venues and collaborations, Philip has also been an artist in residence at Electronic Music Foundation, Harvestworks, High Concept Labs and the Rensing Center. He has lectured at Wesleyan University, University of Texas, University of Chicago, University of South Carolina and the College of Charleston.

He received his BA in Music from the College of Charleston (working closely with Trevor Weston and Quentin Baxter) and an MFA in Electronic and Recorded Media from Mills College (working closely with James Fei).
