Charles-Edouard Platel's current catalogue includes some forty works, to be heard in concert or with artists' exhibitions.
In 2007, he updated and published his essay "Imaginary Music" as a printed book, including many personal photographs illustrating the correspondence between sound and visuals. Free and unrestricted access to the book via the imagimuse.net website is maintained. It is visited daily by various French-speaking Internet users.
With this thread, he creates acoustic compositions: works to be played in concert halls or at home via a stereo or surround audio system. Most of the pieces can be downloaded in their complete version from this site.
He also creates music inspired by the work of artists and provides an atmosphere for the exhibition of their works. He has cooperated with painters Rui Prazeres, Srecko Boban and Gomès, plastic artists Beatrice Carré, Cecile Dachary, K-rol Cordier and Catherine Seznec, photographer Michel Di Maggio, sculptor Isabelle Garbil Fauve-Piot. He also composed several recreational, pedagogic or fun pieces and some videos based on music.
To date he has produced ten CD albums and one DVD album: IMAGIMUSE / 1 in 2008, IMAGIMUSE / 2 in 2009, IMAGIMUSE / 3 - Anachronistic poems in 2011, IMAGIMUSE / 4 - Unheard destinations in 2013, MIGRATION in 2015, VIBRATION in 2016, SABLES and SYMPHONIE LA FORET in 2017, NAVIGATION in 2018, MAYDAY this is the Earth and EN DEVENIR in 2020.
