The debut EP from Romeo Poirier, aka Swim Platførm, SURFACES explores the French composer and sound artist's obsession with water in all its states. Sleek and meditative, Poirier's electroacoustic collages reveal minutely textured crunches, splooshes and echo-clicks that fuse together to chart aquatic space - undulating between the coastlines of chic seaside resorts and the distant, unknown depths.
In this space between darkness and light we float suspended, delivered into the infinity of our abyssal field of vision.
'Industrial but somehow good-natured, a symbiosis of machinery and wildlife - like an artificial reef or propeller blades smothered in algae' - No Fear of Pop
'Wat er ook van zij, muzikaal gezien fascineert de man ons met zijn gelaagd minimalisme' - Indie Style
Mastered by Frederic Alstadt at Ångström Mastering.
Hooked from the very start of A1. An incredible concept executed in the best way imaginable, and it’s gonna be talked about for decades. Every track leaves me with a sickening feeling of bleakness, but I can’t stop listening. It evokes an absurd amount of thoughts and emotions without a single word spoken. jek
Simply otherwordly. Alien and weird. Visual, minimalist, fractured soundscapes. Synthetic entities, half-biological half-artificial. Digital existence, but of non-human nature. Complex album, difficult to grasp in its message. Probably on a completely separate dimension, both in terms of language and consciousness. Maybe a brief window to an alternate reality where a virtual world coexists within and alongside ours. Stéfan Németh
