William Basinski + Richard Chartier.  This cd will be coming out in 
early December.

CD . Chessmachine [ TBA ]  Ivan Pavlov + Richard Chartier. This cd 
has now been basically completed and we are going to be in the 
mastering process soon. This project will include highly stylized, 
rather conceptual live performances in keeping with the theme and we 
are discussing with tina frank (mego) collaboration on visual 
elements. Definitely a departure from our solo works.

CD . Two Point Two   [ 12k/LINE, US ] October 2003  http://www.12k.com
Taylor  and I have assembled the double CD compilation showcasing new 
exclusive works by various artists as a follow-up to 2001's "Between 
Two Points" (12k1012/LINE_004). The LINE cd is now completed and 
features works by ae lab, steve roden, asmus tietchens/david lee 
myers,  steinbruchel,  vend, richard chartier, thom kubli, 
skoltz_kolgen, william basinski, coh. it is a very interesting array 
of works and presents new directions for LINE as we proceed into our 
4th year.

CD . Kim Cascone has curated a compilation cd that will accompany 
Computer Music Journal for later this year. The cd will feature an 
unreleased 0/r (my collaborative project with Nosei Sakata/*0) track 

CD . Archival_1991  [ TBA ]  This new 45 minute work was created 
utilizing two reprocessed analog recordings of mine from 1991 and 
stays true to the aesthetic of my work during that period. still 
shopping around for a label to release it..... stay tuned

CD .  in May 2004 a solo cd will be released on Bernhard G=FCnter's 
label Trente Oiseaux (Germany). This will most likely be a recording 
of one of my live performances in 2003, which will be nice since i do 
not perform that often.... this would give many people the 
opportunity to hear what i do live.. and how it differs in ways with 
my studio work.
