a light (ii) is the second in a series of recorded solo works for a new instrument I've been building for the past two years. 


The series of works focuses human navigation of non human structures.

Performance recorded Nov 15, 2017 


released November 21, 2017

Composer, performer and improviser Philip White works with electronics at the intersection of noise, jazz and contemporary concert music. In addition to his solo work current and recent projects include R WE WHO R WE (with Ted Hearne), duos with Chris Pitsiokos, Paula Matthusen and cross media collaborations with Jim Findlay, Ralph Lemon, Jimena Paz, Daniel Fish, Nora Chipaumire and Urban Bush Women. Recent presentations of his work have taken place at Carnegie Hall, BAM Harvey Theater (Brooklyn), Fylkingen (Stockholm), American Academy in Rome, ISSUE Project Room (NYC) and countless other venues nationally and internationally. His music has been released on Carrier Records, New Focus Recordings, Infrequent Seams, Contour Editions and Tape Drift Records. It has been described as “utterly gripping” (Time Out Chicago), “bona fide evocative music” (Brooklyn Rail), and a “vibrant textural tapestry” (Wall Street Journal).
