More Info

Fnf lange drhnminimalistische Stcke des amerikanischen Klangknstlers - sehr sanfte, dunkle Wellen & Tiefenschichten von Sound werden erfahrbar.

This ongoing series of compositions entitled "Retrieval" were initially created during an artist residency in at Music Research Centre, York University [ York, UK ] in April 2004 and then continued later in 2004. These works along with the two works "Archival91" and "Archival92" find the artist going back to works and loops he recorded between 1990-1993 and 1997 and reforming/reworking them. With the "Retrieval" works, the samples were fed back into the computer from original tapes are in some cases drastically changed to create new layered works. Unlike his ultra-minimalist works like Series and of surfaces on his label LINE these retrievals while still subtle and sculpted like all of Chartier's work reflect a thick lush almost ambient use of sound.
