The album starts with microscopic drones and hissings of tracks "composition09.01", "000.0/01" and "how things change". They diffuse in the surrounding ambient sound, they hover and twist on the brink of audibility. Any sound, not radiated by the acoustic system's loudspeakers, can be included into composition - it can be the sound of a car passing by over the window, the voice of neighbors speaking loudly or even our own breathing... Well, Chartier balances on the verge, at the edge of a huge gulf that is called 'silence'.
Indeed it's the uncompromising and daring approach to music creation, sometimes it makes you be ice-bound in your arm-chair and stick into the windings of microscopic sound threads. At the beginning of "specification.eleven" you can hear more drones - it's deep, piercing and pervasive... This sound doesn't seize the whole surrounding space, it just starts to operate it. The magic of Richard Chartier is exactly in the fact that minimizing the sound pressure and the amount of composition's elements, he makes it so as if he invites us to penetrate into the structure of digital microsound to see its beauty from within.
