«Platform was the first electronic band Rui Gato formed little after he went solo as Outersites (later an audiovisual duo) - from Elastic Void, his first individual effort. For Platform he teamed up with Nuno Clímaco Pinto, a friend guitar player strongly influenced by european jazz and experimental rock. Gato on laptop and modular synth and Nuno on guitar synth and effects they started composing new material built on percussion bases with improv. phrases on top and went to play it live almost immediately. It was never meant to be a studio project but rather a pure live one. Their compositions often changed from gig to gig, although they kept the same percussion elements throughout the lifespan of the duo. In 2004 they put Platform to sleep as Nuno moved to a different city.

Well now, after this 3 years hiatus, Nuno got back last year and a month or so ago, an opportunity arose for Gato to perform in a culture fair in Pontevedra, Galiza (Northwestern corner of Spain) called proxecto-edicion. They decided to reactivate Platform and began rehearsing straight away. Then we had the idea to take some of the best live recordings back from the Platform concert days to do a 'special' release here at test tube. The boys re-mastered 8 tracks for 'Templates' and incidentally, they're playing today at the mentioned fair so it is with special pleasure that we release the record today.

Hope you enjoy this as much we do.» - Pedro Leitão
