Richard Chartier is a Los Angeles based artist and is considered one of the key figures in the current of reductionist sound known as both ‘microsound’ and Neo-Modernist. Chartier’s minimalist digital work explores the inter-relationships between the spatial nature of sound, silence, focus, perception and the act of listening itself.

‘Removed’ was inspired in part by the rigorous line drawings of American visual artist Linn Meyers, whose 2011 untitled drawing graces the cover. I complimented Meyer’s stunning imagery with a ‘destroyed’ typeface, debossed on the front and back covers.
