Series is the 4th solo full length cd by minimal sound artist/composer Richard Chartier. Created over an 8 month period Series and employing soft hushed almost imperceptible high frequencies and bursts and staticy quiet low shifting tones… the works explore an implied silence that is not silent. a quietness that belies the activity and energy of the sounds. cyclical, meticulously subtle structured, vaguely atmospheric digital compositions. meant to be experienced at low volumes or on headphones.
For Series, Chartier was awarded one of twelve Honorable Mentions in the category of Digital Music by the prestigious PRIX ARS ELECTRONICA, 2001 (Linz, Austria). This work was also selected to be exhibited at the 2002 Whitney Biennial at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, March-May of 2002.
