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.
