  • RICHARD CHARTIER: MUTEK (2001)

    INTERVIEWS

    ""minimal", "subtly", "nuance", "repetition" and "dealing with structures" are only a few of the language descriptors that apply to chartier's sound."
  • RICHARD CHARTIER: AMBIENTRANCE (2001)

    INTERVIEWS

    "It's been pleasurable and informative to speak with hyperminimal soundartist and LINE co-founder, Richard Chartier; having been immersing myself in his latest, decidely "light" composition (decisive forms), I appreciated the opportunity to question him about his out-of-the-norm stylings. "
  • RICHARD CHARTIER: WHITNEY BIENNIAL (2002)

    INTERVIEWS

  • RICHARD CHARTIER: WASHINGTON POST (2002)

    INTERVIEWS

    "There is no such thing as American art. Maybe there never was."
  • RICHARD CHARTIER: WASHINGTON POST (2002) (2)

    INTERVIEWS

    "Richard Chartier's sound art is about a different kind of interplay, between sound and silence. His Series requires focused listening, using a headset, to hear the faint clicks, rattles and hums that form the minimalist piece."
  • RICHARD CHARTIER: TIME OUT NEW YORK (2002)

    INTERVIEWS

    "The sound of silence isn't just some Simon and Garfunkel oldie: It's also what some explorers use to create their work. Although it's tough enough to suss out quietude in a noisey city, a good stereo can illuminte the microscopic aural events of sound artist and DJ Ricjard Chartier. But can an ultraminimalist composer make a good DJ? One way is to lead two artistic lives, one seemingly at odds with the other."
  • RICHARD CHARTIER: RADAR MAGAZINE (2002)

    INTERVIEWS

    "The medium of choice for artist Richard Chartier is sound, which he explores with a subtlety and restraint rarely found in the world of "electronic music." "
  • RICHARD CHARTIER: BLOW UP (2003)

    INTERVIEWS

    "Taylor Deupree and Richard Chartier are perhaps unessentialism's most notable contributors to the developments of the microscopic sound movement, and they are also North America's most prevalent participants in this otherwise European phenomenon. Notable for the advent of late-nineties ultra-minimalism, their releases on 12k and LINE are characterized by high-pitched frequencies, atonalities, and a very subdued assortment of mechanical interruptions and reconfigurations."
  • RICHARD CHARTIER: BALTIMORE CITY PAPER (2003)

    INTERVIEWS

    "Richard Chartier's midtown apartment is a neat freak's midcentury modernist dream. The cozy abode of the Baltimore-based sound artist and graphic designer is almost gallery immaculate, though not ascetic. It doesn't contain much, but what it does looks handpicked and well cared for. The abstract paintings hanging on his walls look placed by someone who cares how and where paintings are hung. Items on tables and countertops look placed just so, compositional elements on horizontal canvases. It's the sort of space Mies van der Rohe would go to kick up his heels."
  • RICHARD CHARTIER: ART FORUM (2003)

    INTERVIEWS

    "So, while the benches and speakers that populate Chartier and Taylor Deupree's recent installation specification.twelve, 2003, may recall the sculptural work of Judd or Robert Morris, their primary function is to reveal that fact that sound is directional and immersive."
