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". Laurent Perrier ranks among the most respected members of the French electronic music scene. His name is associated to the aliases Zonk't, Pylône, Heal, Cape Fear, and LP, and with the Odd Size label, an adventure that lasted a decade. His music art ranges from minimal techno to musique concrète, by way of several other states.
