r-n075 | richard chartier. incidence | compact disc

after several releases by artists of the collective around raster-noton on american label line, a long-outstanding invitation was issued into the opposite direction. so last but not least the present release is an expression of long-lasting artistic ties between both labels.

in the greyness heavy waves begin to glide into the one-hour work. they swell and flood a vacuum. chartier is able to intensify this maelstrom in long and graceful moves. in a majestic and subtle manner he creates a subsonic vastness, capturing the listener, disconnecting him from the irrelevant reality. the end mirrors the beginning - revealing the idea of an endless space in an endless composition. finally incidence is a sound stream seeking to transform time into a certain timelessness.

richard chartier runs the label line, following the traditions of trente oiseaux by focusing on minimalist and not beat-oriented sound experiments. his compositions often test the limits of auditory perceptibility. in this way chartier concentrates on tiniest changes within seemingly static sound masses.
