With Burn Station, Platoniq bridges the physical space of
the city with the world of media through the exchanging of files and
the building of personal contacts. The project aims to promote the
right to free culture and to copyright alternatives being developed on
the Internet thanks to the influence of open-source/free software on
digital information. This open source, copyleft model project is an experiment
in practical gift economics and face-to-face network builder.

Come by with some blank CDs and record songs you like from the database.
You can also bring your own compositions for others to copy.
In this way, people can hear work that would never find a commercial sales channel.
