Herve Perez

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.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
