Philippe Laurent is from France and Distorsion was recorded sometime in the early 80s. It was re-released in 2011 on Minimal Wave Records. Be sure to head to Philippe’s Facebook page to see some of his great live show photos as they have a super 80s aesthetic: click here
“Philippe Laurent is a plastic artist, musician and designer. Whether working with graphic codes or digital codes, plastic arts or music, Laurent’s approach is one of research, specifically having to do with people’s perception of signs and symbols. As a multi-media artist, he has always been open to new technologies, whether he is composing musical works or creating graphic works. During the 90s, he reached a landmark with his inter-disciplinary work via shows in France and Germany, by designing complex pieces that mixed various advanced techniques. His paintings, the illusion of calligraphies on monochromic funds, pose a question about the relationship between signs and meanings.” – minimalwave.com
