The wonders of one-way collaborations

First and foremost, Plateforme is a concept, a restrictive framework Laurent Perrier imposed on himself: to create an electroacoustic piece using solely a set of sound sources provided by a "collaborator." The first three fruits of this vast sonic transmutation project are presented on Plateforme #1, the seeds having been planted by Felix Kubin, Lawrence English, and Gianluca Becuzzi. "I gave them no specific directions. I simply asked them to send me raw stuff close to their sound style," explains Perrier. "Some sent me a lot of material, others very little."

Press quotes

The rewards here are mostly for sound art obsessives, processes and minor variations in sonics that bring each of the contributing artists into better focus through subtle comparison.
THE SOUND PROJECTOR, November 2014

Plateforme #1 is indeed an interesting development in the exploration of sound produced from external raw material, a torrent of electrical noise.
HAWAI, July 2014

Ce premier chapitre de la série Plateforme est une réussite et Laurent Perrier a encore montré sa capacité à transformer la matière pour la rendre méconnaissable mais terriblement belle.
LIABILITY, July 2014

Bent glitchy structures in a shape of delusional labyrinth soaked in rain of micro-bursts leave the whole cd finished as a perfect soundtrack for any ears.
FELTHAT, July 2014

Undoubtedly, innovative and skillfully executed by Perrier.
SOUND OF MUSIC, May 2014

A very oblique, mixed bag with very interesting but also very painful, strenuous activity.
MUSIK AN SICH, May 2014

Dense and enveloping electroacoustic, dark and misty, teeming with waste and disruptive elements.
BLOW UP, May 2014

On insistera surtout sur l'instinct révélé par les deux premières pièces, qui impressionnent malgré toute la rigueur des techniques sonores employées.
GOUTE MES DISQUES, April 2014

A conceptual sound artwork resulting in a very fine win-win situation.
KINDAMUZIK, March 2014

"Plateforme #1" is conceptually innovative and makes for an intriguing listening experience.
WHISPERIN & HOLLERIN, March 2014

A fine concept, well executed, great release.
VITAL WEEKLY, March 2014

Very successful compositions in which the artist certainly managed to keep the original quality of the received samples.
NOWA MUZYKA, March 2014
