Pinkcourtesyphone is a continuing project by Los Angeles-based sound artist Richard Chartier.
He is considered one of the key figures in the field of sound art described as “microsound” and Neo-Modernist. Chartier’s minimalist digital work explores the inter-relationships between the spatial nature of sound, silence, focus, perception and the act of listening itself. As Pinkcourtesyphone he has collaborated with the likes of Cosey Fanni Tutti, Kid Congo Powers, William Basinski, and Evelina Domnitch among others.
His sets can be eclectic, ranging from mid-20th century analog-ica, to post punk synth oddities, to ambient soundscapes, to lounge-y reverberations, to contemporary electronica. Ponderous beats, melodies and noise mixed into a flowing soundtrack for you, your cocktail, and your inner ear.
This mix is an artificially flavoured candy sampler box of songs and sentiments that one might hear during one of Chartier's sets at his event PROCEDURE in LA.
