Richard Chartier & Yann Novak :: Undefined (Farmacia901)

Developed as one long title, Undefined is a resonating-sinuous droning sound tapestry which demonstrates a totally absorbing exploration through infinitely subtle waving tones and micro interferences.

Undefined is the new splendid and intensively evocative electronic release published by the Italian based label Farmacia901 (launched a couple of years ago by the inter-media artist and sound designer Fabio Perletta). For new listeners Farmacia901 delivers an original catalog of beautifully packaged albums whose musical register reveals a cross between “new simplicity” (minimalist-poststructural tendencies in “process music”), kinetic-cinematic ambient and sound sculptures.

Undefined is a reunion between two of the most influential artists in the modern days of droning ambient soundscapes. Richard Chartier is a renowned artist mostly appreciated for his sound-visual installations at various contemporary art galleries, for his prolific but remarkable solo and collaborative works in the tonal-droney minimal sounding spectrum. Yann Novak published a handful of soloing efforts on his own label Dragon’s Eye Recordings as well as for several independent labels (Hibernate among others). His musical signature is largely specialized in timeless-sonic sound structures which are psycho-acoustically powerful. I firstly discovered this artist thanks to the excellent deep minimal ambient album he recently signed on Farmacia901.

Developed as one long title, Undefined is a resonating-sinuous droning sound tapestry which demonstrates a totally absorbing exploration through infinitely subtle waving tones and micro interferences. Massive buzzing droned-out work which defies the physical dimension of time. A notable album, definitely recommended for followers of Alvin Lucier, Bernhard Günter, John Oswald’s hauntingly sonic and undulating spectral electroacoustic experiments.

Undefined is available on Farmacia901. [Release page]
