Charles-Edouard Platel

Style and personal ideas:

"Although I am interested in very different musical area, such as classical, jazz, minimalism, electronic, traditional folk musics, sound experiments, I choosed the electroacoustic tools as instruments for my own music. Thanks to software, I make sounds and I experiment some artistic ideas. Then I share this experience, by composing musical works, to be listened in concerts or on disc, to accompany other artists, or simply for entertainment.

Starting from photography or from collaborations with other artists, the visual experience often inspires my projects. Then, thanks to the acoustical work in digital studio, I create along the time an imaginary space where the landscape, object and characters are sounds.

My ideas are gathered by my book “Imaginary Music”, which settles the listener as the prime object of the musical process, according to his capacity to listen, to be interested and to concern himself. In the essence more than in the style, I was mostly influenced by jazz, that I consider as an evident source of inspiration for the music of our times.So the approach which is revealed by my works is to musically invent with the time, the rhythm and the sonority. I feel like in an exciting exploration.

My challenge is to create sounds and rhythms being able to naturally echo with listeners. Each work of mines calls for the imaginary, to lead each listener to the folded layers of his own reminiscences, memories and fantasies. But each one also has its own story that I personally lived and that I propose to discover in this site."
