The man with the knack for re-creating the sound of one hand clapping comes correct with Two Locations. However, what's noticeably different from many of his other releases is that you can actually hear what is going on without having to turn the headphones up to 11. Active and intense listening is still a prerequisite, of course, but the shifts in tones and textures are much more obvious than the majority of his creative output. Fans of Chartier's work will be hard-pressed not to enjoy this, and people with newfound interest in Chartier's development will find Two Locations the perfect starting point to explore the depths of Chartier's silent sounds.
