"Corridor Plateau derives its inspiration from the dark dystopic fiction of H.P. Lovecraft. The music consists of six sequential electronic pieces called "Gang 1-6" by Tolouse Low Trax, also known for his work in the electro-acoustic rock group Kreidler as well for his curatorial works at Salon des Amateurs in Düsseldorf. Moving between indifferent sound- and noisescapes and percussive electronic songs, Toulouse Low Trax's instrumental pieces for Corridor Plateau form an état labyrinthique and were developed as homage to the diasporic sonic worlds of French composer Ghedalia Tazartes. Cover, inner sleeve, and label are allotted to each of the contributing artists and function as individual artist editions. Michael Bauer embellishes the front cover with a complexly structured, inversely reproduced charcoal drawing. The inner sleeve features two anthropomorphic black & white multi-exposured photo collages by Peyman Rahimi, from his ongoing "Wesen" series. The labels depict fat male busts by Thomas Schütte from "Berengo Heads" (2011), his series of Murano glass sculptures. The vinyl was mastered and cut in reverse by the Swiss sound artist and experimental engineer Flo Kaufmann. The needle travels from the center to the rim of the record, in order to achieve maximum bass impact at the peak of each track." (label info)
