CHRIS & COSEY / CARTER TUTTI - NEWS ARCHIVE 2005
MAIL ORDER ON-LINE STORE
As you may have noticed we have temporarily closed our CTI Mail Order web store. We have been experiencing occasional problems lately with incoming orders, and at this point in time they cannot be resolved to our satisfaction. So... our intention is to re-open CTI Mail Order with a new improved web store in the New Year that will also include direct download links. Our entire catalogue has already been encoded with all the necessary metadata and is, as we speak, being transformed by teams of highly trained technicians into download friendly bite size chunks.
IN THE MEANTIME:
Some of our more recent CD catalogue is now available at Amazon, but it can also be ordered in all good record stores.
"Search and ye shall find."
TG IN BERLIN
Throbbing Gristle are playing two concerts, staging a major TG Art exhibition and premiering their long awaited 'Live at The Astoria' film in Berlin, December 2005. Many more details VIA THIS LINK
CARTER TUTTI ALBUM UPDATE
If you are all wondering where the next Carter Tutti album is, well....
in light of the above announcements we hope you will realise how unbelievably busy and sidetracked we've been with an almost overwhelming amount of TG related work, projects and events this year. This unfortunately meant the second Carter Tutti album slipped right off our current release map, by a large degree.
We intend to take a break from TG early next year and begin recording new Carter Tutti material, of which there is much!
More Carter Tutti updates to follow in the coming weeks.

CHRIS CARTER MUSIC IN MOVIE TRAILER
Music from Chris Carter's 'EAR ONE' album has been used in the trailer for the new Hollywood action movie 'INTO THE BLUE'.
iTUNES / DOWNLOADS - UPDATE
We have begun encoding our entire Chris & Cosey catalogue (incl. out of print titles and all Carter Tutti, CTI, solo projects etc.) with the metadata necessary for distribution on iTunes, Amazon, MSN, Napster, Sony etc. Hopefully we should see it appear online before the year is over.
CHANGES TO CTI DISTRIBUTION
During this year and through 2006 Chris Carter and Cosey Fanni Tutti's label CTI will begin making their vast music catalogue available in download form. Currently two Chris & Cosey albums, a compilation track and a few Carter Tutti remixes are already available to download at Apple iTunes (see news item below) but their ultimate aim is to make all of their back catalogue (including out of print releases) accessible via a number of different online download services.
When all their catalogue has been converted into download format CTI intend to make downloads their primary source of distribution. However, we recognise that some fans prefer physical product and with this in mind CTI will still make a small number of titles available as limited edition CD and DVD releases to maintain that personal connection which downloads do not provide. As a result of this decision to move to downloads all current CTI catalogue CD prices have been reduced. Once this stock of CDs has sold out none of these titles will be re-pressed. CTI MAIL ORDER
TG PERFORMANCE TURIN
Chris Carter and Cosey Fanni Tutti's other band Throbbing Gristle will be opening the second Traffic Turin Free Festival on 29 June in Italy. More details at Traffic Festival.
NEW CARTER TUTTI FORUM
A new online forum for discussions on all things Carter Tutti, C&C, Chris Carter, Cosey Fanni Tutti and associated projects is now available to join at: Tribe.net
Chris & Cosey's former label PIAS has placed two of their classic '90s albums on Apple iTunes store, namely: PAGAN TANGO and MUSIK FANTASTIQUE! Chris Carter and Cosey Fanni Tutti were already in the process of compiling their back catalogue and current releases for inclusion on iTunes and other online music download services when PIAS pre-empted them and made these two albums available ahead the official CTI launch later in 2005.
However, we aren't telling Chris & Cosey fans not to buy these downloads but we should point out that the PIAS version of MUSIK FANTASTIQUE! now on iTunes is NOT the re-mastered 2004 CTI re-release which also includes a bonus track. Although the 2004 CTI release is currently only available on CD it will be available on iTunes later this year.
PAGAN TANGO (1991) was one of Chris & Cosey's biggest selling albums but has been out of print for a number of years. It includes such C&C classics as 'In Ecstasy', 'Synaesthesia', 'Take Control', 'Cords of Love', 'Pagan Tango' and many more. The PIAS version of PAGAN TANGO currently on iTunes does also include the original CD bonus track 'Sacred Silence'.
Also available on (most) international iTunes stores are albums by Throbbing Gristle, including two popular remixes by CARTER TUTTI on the 'Mutant TG' album. These are 'HotHeelsUnited (Carter Tutti Remix)' and 'Hamburger Lady (Carter Tutti Remix)'. Here is a direct link to C&C on iTunes | Here is a direct link to Carter Tutti on iTunes.

COSEY FANNI TUTTI at TRACE
To celebrate the first five years of the TRACE gallery in Cardiff Cosey will be premiering a special installation there for one night only on 28th May. The installation includes video, photographs and documentation of her recent private art 'actions' in the UK and USA. www.tracegallery.org
As you may have noticed, the CHRIS & COSEY and CARTER TUTTI web sites have been amalgamated into one site and the two .com web addresses now point to the same location... right here. This was always our intention once people got used to the changeover from C&C to CARTER TUTTI, it also means less duplication of info and less web authoring work for us.
Please feel free to make any comments regarding the site (including errors and such) and we will pass them onto our webmaster. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org
CARTER TUTTI LIVE DATES
Due to the pressure of existing workloads, deadlines and ongoing projects no further live music performances are currently planned by CARTER TUTTI for 2005. If the situation changes we will send out an email to all subscribers and an announcement will be posted here.
CARTER TUTTI AT MOCA LOS ANGELES - UPDATE
The sell out CARTER TUTTI performance in Los Angeles was a resounding success and Chris and Cosey would like to thank all involved at MOCA and the Disney/CalArts Theater for making it work so smoothly. Although the performance was an exclusive 'one off' event that won't be repeated as a live set it was filmed and recorded and we are hoping to release it on CD or DVD at a later date. Further information will appear on this site as soon as we have it.
