France Jobin + Richard Chartier
DUO

France Jobin and Richard Chartier didn’t waste any energy on sleeve art (look at that minimal white design) or titling (it’s a duo collaboration, called DUO), so that they could pour it all into their music. Minimal on the surface but really incredibly deep, these two artists, working together for the first time, have produced some excellent and immersive sound slabs here. On mAtter.

Pinkcourtesyphone
Indelicate Slices

On his newest album, Pinkcourtesyphone, is rehabilitating mood music. Its status as musical self-help means it’s rarely taken seriously, so Richard Chartier’s solution? Negativity. Indefinite Slices comes on a limited edition CD featuring seven tracks which plumb atmospheric depths, abrasive ambiances, and bad moods.

William Basinski & Richard Chartier
Divertissment

Serious minimalists heavyweights collaborating right here. William Basinski should need no introduction, and Richard Chartier has been ploughing a rich furrow of electronic microsound for years. Their third collaboration together is Divertissment, which is of course a richly detailed sonic environment, subtle but powerful.

Pinkcourtesyphone
A Ravishment of Mirror

Originally released on CD in 2014, Pinkcourtesyphone’s Ambient, Drone masterpiece,  A Ravishment of Mirror, is now available on vinyl for the first time through the label Thoughtforms. Inspired by the city of Los Angeles in which Richard Chartier, the man behind Pinkcourtesyphone, lives, Chartier creates a sinister and seductive moodscape which creaks with David Lynch-like atmosphere.

Richard Chartier
Removed

Minimalist sound designer Richard Chartier explores the relationships between sound, silence and focused listening, with many of his works made as exhibition pieces and releases through Line, Important, and Raster-Norton. Removed consists of two compositions that play out like distant, formless, icy drones, but sit in it and pick it apart and whole new levels of intricacy snap into focus.

Pinkcourtesyphone
Something You Are Or Something You Do

Sound artist Richard Chartier’s polarising and parallel running project Pinkcourtesyphone takes his minimal, distant and abstracted drones to an emotionally and musically elevated level, over bearing but still remain incredibly minimal. Mechanical drones meets micro tonal harmony. Previous collaborators include William Basinski and Cosey Fanni Tutti. Incredibly limited cassette on The Tapeworm.

Pinkcourtesyphone
taking into account only a portion of your emotions

Pinkcourtesyphone is the woozy drone project of Richard Chartier, and taking into account only a portion of your emotions is his new album. These sounds are luscious and rich, but there is a sense that certain themes lie beneath the surface: detachment, darkness, dreams. The album is out on Peter Rehberg’s Editions Mego label.
