Vertonen

Vertonen has been the solo project of Blake Edwards since 1991. Using a wide array of source material, including custom-built pedals, hand altered records, an oversized Russian synthesizer, shortwave radio, and field recordings, his audio explorations have included musique concrete, drones, harsh noise, and off-kilter lurching rhythms. His most recent work has focused on using dead and dying media to accentuate communication and its various limitations / frequent failings. Edwards has received four City of Chicago arts grants in recognition of his work, and he also runs the experimental music label CIP, releasing works by both new and well-known artists including Z'EV, Leticia Castaneda, Wolf Eyes, Joe Colley, and Brutum Fulmen.

Vertonen performed at the Fourteenth Annual Activating the Medium Festival in 2011.
