'Anthropocene' consists of 10 tracks exploring 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, 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 an occasional hint to a groove or melody. All the music is fully improvised and the bands style was developed exclusively trough live performances.

The album was recorded and mixed by David Alexander Sjølie in august 2013 at Bark Studios, and mastered by Giuseppe Ielasi. Ida Kristine G. Hatleskog designed the cover.
