One year after the collaboration with Gwyneth Wentink, sound artist and composer Pinkcourtesyphone (aka Richard Chartier) has announced the release of a a new album. Leaving Everything To Be Desired is out on September 25th via Room40. According to the press release, it is a sumptuous serenade revealing with candor the essence of the many careful adjectives used for situational descriptions.
Pinkcourtesyphone swerves range out of another interior from sparkling dream-soft shimmers of strings, creamy arrangements, drifting drones, to dissected cha chas. Sometimes charmingly flamboyant, sometimes darkly wistful, sometimes deadeningly soothing, sometimes abrasively tender, but always engaging and ultimately engulfing of us.
This recording of temporal extravagances is meant to enhance with all the pillowy richness of high fidelity to bring you every fascinating hue and shade of sound. It’s soft focus aesthetics lull the mind’s ear into a state of woozy intoxication, comfortably unsteady underfoot.
