Giles Perring and The Exchange is the live incarnation of the Jura based composer, musician and cross media artist who has been working at the intersection of many artfroms since 1980. Giles' career spans sound sculpture, composition for TV, film and theatre, record production, music education, and he has worked with artists as diverse as sonic sculpture project Echo City, inveterate punks Mekons, Tuvan throat singer Albert Kuvesin, pioneering electronic output Fad Gadget, improvisers Alan Wilkinson and Ivor Kallin, genre bending vocalist Melanie Pappenheim and composer Orlando Gough.

Giles Perring and The Exchange evolved during lockdown with the support of Dunoon Burgh Hall, and Giles brings musical compositions into play with ideas central to his recent sound art projects ‘The Exchange 14 09 19’ [a performance done by telephone] and The World Organ [a sound sculpture that translates the sound of a bay on Jura into an ambient listening experience]. Expect a musical journey that directly calls up and evokes the sound of Jura, a trip around an imaginary radio dial, vivid imagery and emotive melodies, played by a band that combines Giles’ evocative minimalism with the random and chance interplay which his sound art offers.

The Exchange band combines many traditions and musical approaches and features Simon Edwards [Fairground Attraction, Billy Bragg], Julia Farrington [Echo City], Sarah Homer [La Folea, Globe Theatre], Esther Swift [Twelfth Day, Unthanks] and Catriona Price [Twelfth Day, Fara]. The live ensemble will be joined by remote performers too, so listen out and keep your eyes peeled.
