Electronic Ambient Remixes One and Three are radical ambient reworkings of Carter’s early solo work and Throbbing Gristle’s rhythms, each album taking a microscope to elements of the original tracks, transforming them into entirely different pieces.
Electronic Ambient Remixes One (EAR ONE)was the first in a series of four Electronic Ambient Remix solo albums by Chris Carter and Cosey Fanni Tutti. Originally released in 2000 (CTI), the starting point for the tracks was Chris Carter’s The Space Between (1980, Industrial), an album collating Carter’s analogue sound experiments recorded in the 1970s and 1980s at Throbbing Gristle & Industrial Records’ London studio. Electronic Ambient Remixes Oneis a reworking of those early recordings and features heavily manipulated and transmogrified drifting ambient textures, whilst still retaining the core essence of the original tracks.
Electronic Ambient Remixes Three (EAR THREE) was Chris Carter’s second Electronic Ambient Remix solo album, originally released in 2002 (CTI), and at its nucleus are a dozen of his original Throbbing Gristle rhythms. These rhythms have been transmuted into three dimensional polyrhythmic loops, weird gothic textures and spooky ethereal ambiences. With track titles giving a sideways glance to the originals, the album features the pulsating beats of ‘Indiscipline’, the eccentric undulations of ‘Heathen Mirth’ and the unnerving hypnotic motion of ‘Hamburger Man’.
As a founding member of Throbbing Gristle alongside Cosey Fanni Tutti, Peter ‘Sleazy’ Christopherson and Genesis Breyer P-Orridge, Chris Carter has had a significant role in the development of electronic music – a journey which has continued through his releases as one half of Chris & Cosey and Carter Tutti and a third of Carter Tutti Void – as well as with his own solo and collaborative releases. Carter released his first solo album in over 17 years in 2018, Chris Carter’s Chemistry Lessons Vol 1.
