Portland, Oregon's White Rainbow in concert from 2010

20130911-forkner

Over the course of the past week, the SoundCloud account of the Boulder, Colorado–based cultural organization Communikey (aka CMKY) has been uploading a heap of recordings from its past festivals. One highlight is a nearly 40-minute performance by White Rainbow, aka Adam Forkner of Portland, Oregon, taped back in 2010 at the Black Box, which is on the University of Colorado campus. In a brief descriptive note, Communikey explains that Forkner/Rainbow “builds his sounds from the unassuming means, relying on his voice, guitar and a selection of pedals and electronics.” The result is a stuttery haze, somewhere between Meat Beat Manifesto’s low-key industrial beats, Christopher Willits’ glittering stasis, and Herbie Hancock at his most broken-funky, if such a thing could be imagined.

Track originally posted for free download at soundcloud.com/communikey. More on Communikey at cmky.org. Forkner maintains a site at whiterainbow.tumblr.com.
