Chris Carter (Throbbing Gristle, X-TG, Chris & Cosey): I Dream Of Wires Extended Interview #9

In this video the makers of I Dream Of Wires give us more teasers of their upcoming documentary. This time we get an extended clip of one of The Synthesizer Book all-time favorites…Chris Carter.

From the build-up of modular synthesizers like his Roland System 100m, custom made noise boxes, the liquidation of his analogs (regret!), a decade of software and his new found passion for Eurorack modulars, we get a good brief glimpse into the mindset and studio of the legendary Chris Carter.

In the early 90’s things like Roland D-50’s and digital synthesis began to play a more prominent role in Carters compositions. Later though, feeling regret at his decision to liquidate the retro-gear, a new found passion takes place and this is the focus here.

In addition, if you haven’t gotten your hands on the newly released Desertshore/The Final Report, do it. It’s chock full of Nico/Peter “Sleazy” Christopherson goodness. As well as, collaborations that compliment the recordings significantly. It’s been on repeat mode in our studio for the last couple of weeks. Some of the artist featured on this recording are: Marc Almond (Soft Cell), Sasha Grey, Blixa Bargeld, Gaspar Noé and Antony. I’m sure Sleazy would be proud that his long-standing dream project finally saw the light of day.
