2011, Locust

With the release of Dartmouth Street Underpass, Keith Fullerton Whitman (AKA Hrvatski) inaugurates the first of 12 monthly installments in our new Location Sound Series, 'Met Life', in which we asked a number of musicians from all over the world to field record an event in a city of their choice and devise a response to it (both source recording and response comprise the two tracks on the CD). For his efforts, Whitman sat in on the acoustic world of the tunnel that connects Boston's back bay station to the Copley Plaza under Dartmouth street. The sounds are a combination of pumped in Muzak, children's voices bouncing off the glass walls, the sudden rush of commuters, and the glorious, rumbling low end buzz and rattle of the train ushering in and out of the station. Whitman electronically processed elements of the field recording and devised a brilliantly conceived thing of beauty that slowly and effortlessly unravels into an entrancing long form drone.
