The thirteenth installment in this series is the first full length CD in this series, being a split by Richard Chartier and Boca Raton. Their approaches to sound are similar, so it would be a good idea to combine them on a split release. Richard Chartier (b.1971), sound/installation artist and graphic designer, has created critically acclaimed recordings for labels such as 12k/LINE (USA), Trente Oiseaux (Germany), Spekk (Japan), Mutek_rec (Canada), and Fallt (Ireland), including collaborations with artists Taylor Deupree, William Basinski, COH, and *0 and has appeared on numerous international compilations. His digital minimalist work explores the inter-relationships between the spatial nature of sound, silence, focus, and the act of listening.
Chartier's sound works and sound installations have been presented internationally including at the exhibits Sounding Spaces at ICC (Tokyo, Japan), I Moderni / The Moderns at Castello di Rivoli (Torino, Italy), 2002 Biennial at the Whitney Museum of American Art (NY), Resynthesis at The Art Institute of Chicago and with the travelling sound exhibit Invisible Cities created by digital media curators Fehler as well as solo and collaborative installations for Fusebox (DC) and Diapason (NY). He has performed his work live across Europe, Japan, and North America at MUTEK (Montreal, Canada), DEAF (Dublin, Ireland), Observatori (Valencia, Spain), Transmediale (Berlin, Germany), Lovebytes (Sheffield, UK), The Leeds International Film Festival (Leeds,UK), The Rotterdam International Film Festival (NE), Garage (Stralsund, Germany) and other noted digital art/music festivals and at exhibits such as Frequenzen [Hz] at the Schirn Kunsthalle (Frankfurt) and A Minimal Future? Art as Object 1958-1968 at the Museum of Contemporary Art (Los Angeles). The conceptual performance piece Chessmachine, a multimedia collaborative work by Chartier, Ivan Pavlov and video/installation artists Evelyn Domnitch and Dmitry Gelfand recently premiered at the opening event of the 2004 MUTEK festival.
In 2000 he formed the recording label LINE and has since curated its continuing documentation of compositional and installation work by international sound artists and composers exploring the aesthetics of contemporary and digital minimalism. The premiere release on LINE, Chartier's Series as awarded Honorable Mention in the category of Digital Music by the prestigious Prix Ars Electronica, 2001 (Austria).
Boca Raton is an ongoing musical project started by Martijn Tellinga (1974, Amsterdam, Netherlands) in 1999. It hovers at the edges of synthesized and concrete-acoustic soundworlds. The abstraction, or rather reflection, of concrete sources through electronic synthesis and manipulation creates an alias in sound which shares the associative and narrative character of the everyday soundtrack that surrounds us. By using elements of both worlds, its musical form shows the integration and co-existence of natural - unstaged - sound and its artificially created reflection.
More than relying on melody, harmony and rhythm, these soundworks are constructed from the fundamental building blocks of music: texture, volume and time-elapse. A composition is made by arranging and re-arranging elements, magnifying their charac-teristics, outlinening tendency and by emphasizing the intrinsic value of the material. As well as displaying an autonomously excisting sonic object, these environments are as much a carrier for the compositional form and musical gesture.
The first solo-works of Martijn Tellinga have recently been commisioned by labels such as - Spekk - (Japan) and - Absurd - (Greek). Since September 2003, he has been studying Sonology at the Royal Conservatory The Hague, Netherlands. In 1999 he started the platform for contemporary electro-acoustic music Stichting Mixer, having organised numerous events and released over 25 titles today. [press release]
