WILLIAM McALLISTER WHITMER: is a psychoacoustician as well as composer and improviser. American, living in Glasgow since 2010, his practice ranges from tape manipulation to traditional Javanese gamelan, but is primarily focused on mitigating the spectrotemporal constraints of the ’ukulele with the stochastic and bombastic properties of amplification under the stage name of ‘williwaw’.
A frequent performer at iota, 'Amp'd up uke' is what he does.
He played an epic session during our 'What's in a Mile?' show
AND compiled a piece for the iota 'ArtFlash' in 2013.
WILLIWAW has a wee residency slot on second Sundays at the Old Hairdressers.
