Hervé Perez is a sound artist/composer from France, now based in Sheffield, UK.
plays the saxophones, shakuhachi and laptop in several groups ranging from free-jazz, electro-acoustic improvisation and contemporary jazz.
Sounding out, one of his current projects, is an exploration of architecture, outdoor acoustics and sacred sites - investigating the nature of space and natural topography - through the practice of deep listening.
These recordings are documents of in situ improvisations, inspired by the spirit and the special characteristics of a location.
