Over the past couple of years, Sandro Perri has been letting us in on a fascinating collection of strange and enchanting collaborative sound recordings that he’s been involved with – rich in deconstructed melody, aleatory composition techniques, and interplay between acoustic and synthetic-electronic instrumentation.
A bounty of private and unreleased tracks has been accumulating for some time and Constellation is excited to report that many of these will now see the light of day: we're releasing three LPs of this material over the next few seasons, rounded up under the project name Off World. Volume 1 was released in fall 2016, about which Boomkat said "some of the most inventive, spellbinding work in [Perri's] catalogue...one the most original and satisfying albums we've heard this year – can't wait to see what the next instalments bring".
Chiefly a studio-based endeavour, Off World traces its origins as far back as 2008, with Perri and fellow Torontonian Lorenz Peter (Corpusse, Processor) working together on tracks and very occasionally performing live under the moniker. However the project's recordings encompass collaborations between Perri and many other producers and musicians, including Drew Brown (Lower Dens, Blonde Redhead, Beck), Susumu Mukai (Zongamin), M J Silver (Mickey Moonlight), Craig Dunsmuir (Glissandro 70, Kanada 70), Eric Chenaux, and Jesse Zubot.
