We Release Imploding Stars by Hervé Perez
A New Release On Focused Silence
“Imploding Stars” by Hervé Perez. An improviser & sound and visual artist, Hervé performs spontaneous compositions with saxophones and laptop, using processed field recordings. His work is influenced by practices such as jazz, electro-acoustic, contemporary music, experimental electronics, free improvisation, immersive sound art and techniques of sound therapy.
It is an absolute pleasure to be working with Hervé on this release. Sourced, performed live, mastered and rendered by Hervé himself – the man’s patience extended to this knuckle-dragging Luddite is an example to behold. Sheffield resident, Hervé is well known on the improv scene. Formerly of France, Hervé melds saxophone and assorted prepared sound into a live recording.
Hervé has developed a very personal way to process and sculpt location recordings to reveal their musical features and maximise resonance with the listener and their experience of sound.
Hervé’s use of field recordings is concerned with frequencies and harmonic relationships found in nature. How they relate to the real, physical world, and how the sounds of natural elements connect to our experience.
Hervé’s research approaches sound as vibration, the relation between sound and objects or spaces, architecture and the body.
Hervé works in sound design, sound recording and editing, post-production, mastering and composition, sound art and installation as well as performance which remains his main focus.
