Richard Chartier is considered one of the key figures in the current of reductionist electronic sound art which has been termed both “microsound” and Neo-Modernist. His minimalist digital work explores the inter-relationships between the spatial nature of sound, silence, focus, perception and the act of listening itself.
Chartier’s sound works/installations have been presented in galleries and museums internationally including the 2002′s Whitney Biennial. He has performed his work live across Europe, Japan, Australia, and North America at digital art/electronic music festivals and exhibits.
He has been curating releases via his label LINE for over ten years and in 2010 Chartier was awarded a Smithsonian Institution Artist Research Fellowship to explore the National Museum of American History’s collection of 19th-Century acoustic apparatus for scientific demonstration.
