DALE JONATHAN PERKINS

BIOGRAPHY

Dale Jonathan Perkins is an electronic music artist. Perkins believes in a holistic approach that embraces a range musical influences to create new listening experiences. Academics and composers have described Perkins’ work as a deliberate approach to hybridity embracing both popular and traditional electroacoustic music. His commitment to ‘New Music’ led him to become founder and director of the International Festival for Innovations in Music Production and Composition (FIMPaC) - an annual metropolitan New Music festival that was held at Leeds College of Music and nightclubs across Leeds City Centre for a number of years; festival artists have included Trevor Wishart, David Toop, Leigh Landy, Bill Drummond, Jazzie B, Michel Chion, Juice Vocal Ensemble and David Vorhaus (White Noise), Scanner, and Gabriel Prokofiev showing his commitment to different musical approaches. In 2017 iFIMPaC becomes part of the Sounds like THIS festival.

Perkins’ suite Voice Without Words (his first suite to be released in association with Ishikawa Records) was selected at the Bourges International Electroacoustic Music Competition in 2009 (Electronic Arts Category). Movements from the suite have had a number of national and international performances through multichannel speaker installations.
