Undoubtedly, each successive Keith Fullerton Whitman release could be considered as intellectual as it is textural. There‘s a place for academia when discussing Whitman‘s regurgitative electro-acoustic processing, but it becomes secondary to the immersive music‘s emotive modulation. This 41-minute DSP/analog abstraction-captured live to hard disk in Lisbon in early October 2005-states and reinstates itself as the most intentionally direct, least studio-distilled and obsessed-over release of the tonal poet‘s catalogue. A dewy diffusion of sublime sine harmonic floes and granular gauze, Lisbon is an unhurried unfurling of muted melodies, proving an un-retouched glimpse into Whitman‘s arterial modus.
