CHARGAUX (b. 1987/1988, American)
Chargaux is a rebellious performance collective challenging rules of structure in sound and art. In their violin and viola duo, Jasmin Charles and Margaux Whitney bring together classical string training with experimental forms of sound work to create original compositions. This unique sound, combined with their video work, personal aesthetic, and projects with other artists results in the making of hybrid performances presented around the world; importantly at institutions including the ​Museum of Modern Art in New York. Chargaux also collaborates with lifestyle brands and independent designers treating each brand as an abstract person. The pair’s most recent project, Meditations of a G, is a blend melodic vocals and cinematic string arrangements.

After studying at Berklee College of Music and Boston College, Chargaux released its first project, The Gallerina Suites in November 2013. The work served as an instrumental tale of ups and downs while adjusting to life in Bushwick, New York. The Chargaux sound is featured on several major projects, two of which were recently Grammy-nominees – Kendrick Lamar’s Good Kid m.a.a.d City and J Cole’s 2014 Forest Hills Drive. In 2016, Chargaux had its first gallery solo project at Catinca Tabacaru Gallery in New York.
