CARTER TUTTI VOID (Chris Carter, Cosey Fanni Tutti and Nik Void) have released their third and final studio album, Triumvirate - available on vinyl, CD and digitally via Conspiracy International.

Containing all new studio recordings, Triumvirate brings Chris Carter, Cosey Fanni Tutti and Nik Void’s collaborative partnership as Carter Tutti Void to a conclusion. The trio first came together as a collective for a live performance, invited by Mute for the Short Circuit Festival in 2011 and released their acclaimed debut, the live album Transverse the following year.

Carter Tutti Void went on to release f(x) (Industrial Records, 2015), their first studio recording and performed a handful of selected shows, culminating in their final live performance in Hull, part of a series of events for Hull City of Culture 2017 centred around the COUM Transmissions retrospective at Humber Street Gallery.

For some time Carter, Tutti and Void have been awaiting an opportunity when all three artists were able to gather at Carter and Tutti’s Studio47 in Norfolk, where the album was recorded, produced and mastered. Triumvirate was approached with the improvisational spirit of previous Carter Tutti Void albums. The rhythms, created by Chris Carter, formed the foundation and starting point from which the process began of melding the live instrumentation of Cosey Fanni Tutti and Nik Void’s searing guitars, vocals, effects and the arsenal of sounds each had amassed from a variety of sources, some sounds manipulated to extremes, all fed into the mix.
Tying the album together is the power of three, and a free open approach to sound shared by the trio.

Carter Tutti Void are Chris Carter, Cosey Fanni Tutti (Chris & Cosey / Throbbing Gristle) and Nik Void (Factory Floor / NVPR). Chris Carter recently released his first solo album in 17 years, Chris Carter’s Chemistry Lessons Vol. 1 (Mute, 2018) and Cosey Fanni Tutti’s TUTTI, her first album since 1982, came out earlier this year on Conspiracy International (home of Chris and Cosey since 1982). Nik Void is currently working on her debut solo album.



THE GUARDIAN Single of the Week - “impressively, voluptuously evil”

“Triumvirate is a beautiful celebration of all things Carter Tutti Void and is the all-important final ingredient in what will be a long lasting and rich legacy.” - Louder Than War

““These are feisty, punishing, physical pieces, each containing a paranoiac sense of twitchiness and vast blocks of beautiful, undulating, joyous noise….To think of Triumvirate as being the end of the road for [the] trio… is, frankly, a crying shame” - Electronic Sound
“Cruel, gutsy and a fittingly sensual… end” - The Wire

“A lesson in the primal power of noise” – The Guardian

“… some astonishing shifts of texture and timbres. There’s a thrill to their noise.
…while it can be fierce, the group’s swansong is also surprisingly lyrical in places”

"as the people move, they are moved… there is no nihilism in this noise, nothing but a deep and wonderful sense of love." – The Quietus

““As a three-piece, their contributions are mammoth yet the sounds are overtly minimal. …a rich and intoxicating parting gift from what’s proven a fiercely creative venture” - Crack

“Essential” – FACT
