We introduced different times London based producer and composer Jim Perkins, also known for the project Cenes. Four years after Constance, he announced the release of a new album. Pools is out tomorrow via British label label Bigo+Twigetti. It features Fiona Brice, Richard George, Lucy Wilkins, Reiad Chibah, Tony Woollard, Steve Rossell at strings;
Chris Green Armitage at the piano in “The Wooden King”, Katy Ayling at the clarinets and vocals from Will Arundell (“Outside In”) and Joanna Forbes L’Estrange (“Outside In, A Ritual for Saying Goodbye, Pools”). Two excerpts are available below.
It has been described as having a discernible source of inspiration that unfolds in a series of variegated expressions and tributaries. A classically trained musician, Jim draws from the compositional techniques of his roots and subverts them with innovative recording techniques and sound design.
“A relaxed compositional framework leaves room for the serendipity of improvisation” says Jim “it facilitates a beautiful balance; music with purpose, music that breathes.”
