Platform is a band playing acoustic, free improvised music. It's a meeting between three young musicians from Oslo's scene for improvised music and a French improvising veteran. Platform started out as a trio of Jonas Cambien, Jan Martin Gismervik, and Katrine Schiøtt in 2011, and started to collaborate with Xavier Charles in 2012. After some years of performing in Scandinavia, New York, Spain, and Portugal, they present their debut album. Anthropocene explores slowly changing textures, elastic sonic sculptures, and meditative drones. Small ideas get all the time and space they need to develop and be fully played out. Using prepared piano, minimalistic percussion, and extended techniques on clarinet and cello, Platform creates abstract and cinematic sheets of sound. The album sounds sometimes dark and noisy, sometimes light and dreamy, with the occasional hint of a groove or melody. All the music is fully improvised and the band's style was developed exclusively through live performances. Jonas Cambien: piano; Jan Martin Gismervik: drums; Katrine Schiøtt: cello; Xavier Charles: clarinet.
