about

Of Surfaces suggests an incremental process of reduction. Compositional focus placed in the space between sounds and silence. Barely audible events negotiated through surfaces-implied sounds heard through the conduit of a surface, sounds in another room, in between and beyond surface levels create the fabric of this work. Of Surfaces is a space between the Chartier's pointalist series and the layered orchestrations of decisive forms exploring the relationship between sound, silence, focus, and the act of listening.

Intended for quiet amplification or headphone use.
Formed 7.01-11.01.
