The album is hostile and debilitating. But playing Contact at home still falls short of experiencing Pharmakon live, despite Chardiet's efforts to transpose the energy that's exchanged between audience and performer at her shows.

The fourth Pharmakon album, Contact, was released by Sacred Bones on March 31, 2017. Pharmakon (2009, BloodLust!)

Contact ‎(LP, Album, Ltd, Num). Sacred Bones Records.

For 2014’s Bestial Burden-influenced by an illness that required emergency surgery-she placed animal organs on her chest and torso, as if her own innards had broken through her skin. On the cover of the third Pharmakon full-length, Contact, Chardiet is no longer alone. A mesh of greasy fingers cover her face, her hair tangled in between them like a spiderweb catching flies.

For Contact, Margaret Chardiet . Pharmakon wanted to look at the moments when our mind can come outside of and transcend our bodies. The release date of Contact marks the ten-year anniversary of Margaret Chardiet’s project, Pharmakon. While working on her newest release, she began to evaluate the project as a whole. Though the content of each record has been very different and specific, the pervading question, which has underlined them all, is what is means to be human. Her last album, Bestial Burden, focused on the disconnect between mind and body, looking at the human as an isolated consciousness stuck inside of a rotting vessel.

The album is hostile and debilitating. Chardiet's presence on the album is so commanding, however, that you can almost feel her reaching out to you from beyond the recording. It'll shake you up, no matter what.

Noise artist Margaret Chardiet, aka Pharmakon, returns this week with Contact, a sister album to 2014’s Bestial Burden that sees the New Yorker still confronting her mortality after a serious illness. Adam Bychawski hears how she was liberated by the realisation that we’re all nothing but a speck in the universe. Bestial Burden, Margaret Chardiet’s 2014 album as Pharmakon, ended with a line that haunted you long after the music died down. The New York noisemaker howled I don’t belong here into the void, before being drowned out by a chilling chorus of laughter.
