About Chris Carter
British electronic musician Chris Carter is best known as a co-founder of the pioneering industrial group Throbbing Gristle. His synthesizer work provided some of the most rhythmic and melodic elements of the group's music, foreshadowing much of the more accessible industrial and techno which would emerge during the '80s and '90s. Following TG's breakup, Carter and bandmate/partner Cosey Fanni Tutti formed the prolific, influential darkwave/synth pop duo Chris & Cosey (later known as Carter Tutti), in addition to making more experimental soundscapes as Creative Technology Institute (or CTI). Carter's solo recordings include the Gristle-esque industrial album The Space Between (1980), the ambient techno full-length Small Moon (1999), and 2018's Chemistry Lessons, Vol. 1, which was influenced by the BBC Radiophonic Workshop's groundbreaking work from the '60s. Carter is well-known for his electronics expertise and has created and designed effects units and sound generators such as the Gristleizer.
