This is the motivation of the jury:
“In the work Platasonus, Sergey Filatov, referring to the experiments between avant-garde music and visual arts, uses aluminum as sound metal with essential construction and original and minimal technology, thanks to the percussive action of wires moved by simple electrical devices, bearing small clappers at the end. The contrast between the functional essentiality of the structure and the evocative randomness of the musical effects is resolved in a sense of delicate, discreet and intimate harmony, which is not free from a subtle and perhaps disquieting allusion to the possible hybridizations between man and machine”.
