Richard Chartier & Taylor Deupree - Specification. Fifteen [Line - 2006]

Specification. Fifteen grows in shape and form slowly from silence, slowly the shape and definition the drones and electronics become clear, but never too  defined. This is the real definition of ambient music, at normal stereo volume it just paints the rooms tone in soothing pastel colours, like autumnal first light just lighting the room.

It feels very much  like seeing something on the horizon and the closure you get the more divined it gets. But it never seems to fully formed,  always having an allusive mysterious edge. It has a wonderfully slow moving air to it, like watching a flower open, sweet bell like drones mix with the dwelling stayed tone. Certainly not music for those wanting quick rewards ,you have to live and breathe this for sometime. Do other things while listening and you’ll suddenly pick up exquisite tones and textures, it really is music to let drift around your space, to let sink into you being. under closer head phone inspection, it  stands up too , this is not just audio soup, it's  a collection of enchanting  and well crafted sound textures.

The piece was original commissioned  by the Hishhorn museum and sculpture garden in Washington DC, for a exhibition of  seascape photos by renowned japanese photographer Hiroshi Sugimoto. Now you can have it paint your space, with its settling tones. To hear sound samples and buy direct go Here.
