Perfume is the collaboration between Craig Wells (UK) and Mathias Loose (DK) two sound artists who have both made their home in Bergen Norway. Perfume represents a new way of working for the pair as they infuse lush textured field recordings and composition with elements of electro ambient and atmospheric instrumental hiphop inviting comparisons with the complex productions of Flying Lotus Four Tet or Icelandic composer Johann Johannsson. Together Wells and Loose create a rich tapestry that weaves between analogue breaks and sampled acoustic sounds evoking ecology and nature. Central to Perfumes method is working in a space between sound art and music employing a large performance ecology built from the duos custommade instruments. Everyday objects are amplified and augmented while obscure often discarded sounds are woven into polyrhythmic tapestries where vocal shards and extended jazz chords dissolve into an intimate headspace. Seductive cinematic sensual and exquisitely beautiful the 3 tracks defy a single genre classification meandering through laidback progressions with intricatelyfused melodies which borrow from world music folk Afrobeat and further afield. With a distinctive compositional flair these three tracks offer an immersive listening experience that moves at the peripheries of genre where grooves stutter into ambient plateaus and found sounds puncture the surface of the synthesised. Perfume is a processorientated approach to composition where creative trajectories are ignited from malfunctions and error using a range of technologies both new and old. As composers Wells and Loose are instinctive they follow sounds inherent morphogenetic impulses allowing crackles distortions and hisses to become part of the sonic narrative as scenes and milieus to occupy and inhabit. Fragments of dialogue weave in and out illuminating the journey.
