William Harrington was born in Yonkers, New York. By the time he was a sophomore in high school, he was working as a professional musician. While at Cal State, Dominguez Hills he studied composition, performance, electronic music, and prepared piano techniques with Richard B. Evans, who authored the classic book on John Cage, âThe Well Prepared Piano.â He was also influenced by seminars with several composers including Nicholas Slominsky.
After leaving college he worked in the wholesale record industry for two years where he amassed a sizable collection of electronic and avant-garde recordings before going on tour. He worked as a keyboard technician for several bands including Gentle Giant, before beginning a three year working relationship with Frank Zappa - including three American tours, two European tours, spending several months in the studio working on the album "Baby Snakes" and making a brief, credited appearance in Zappa's movie, "Baby Snakes". He was with Zappa in Paris when Pierre Boulez first visited.
Upon returning to LA, he attended the UCLA Extention Music Business course where he was awarded two NARAS scholarships. He studied record production with Nick Venet (producer of The Beach Boys, Creedence Clearwater and many others). His first cd, Urban Electronic Music, has received good reviews and airplay on NPR, college, and indie radio stations. In 2006, he was awarded a SUBITO grant by The American Composers Forum.
His first CD, Urban Electronic Music, was constructed using loops recorded over a 30-year period, analog and digital synthesis, as well as traditional instruments and found objects. It has received good reviews and airplay on NPR, college, and indie radio stations.
Recently, he has performed at The Ventura New Music Festival, electro-music 2006 (Philadelphia), and appears in the indie film, 40 Bands in 80 Minutes.
" ... William C. Harringtonâs sub-sonic shuffle âThe Long Descent,â on his latest release âNuclear Menace.â You have to love Harringtonâs cracked sense of humor (the single word âBOOMâ faces those who open the jewel case) and personal visionâ like Harringtonâs prior disc âUrban Electronic Music,â âNuclear Menaceâ is a jarring hodge-podge of soundsâ evocative, overwhelming, disturbing, peaceful. I will cheatâ you should just hear this one to see why.
I almost forgot â donât neglect to notice Rune Freeman and Seth Kasselmanâs (of Warm Climate, duh) contribution to the disc, on âRockitt IIâ. Huge craziness, I will leave it at that... "
