Off World


Off World


Press statement

Introducing the debut collection of roving, semi-improvised, collaborative song deconstructions by Off World, featuring long-standing Constellation artist Sandro Perri and a coterie of fellow-traveling producers. Off World is the moniker under which a stockpile of primarily electronic, studio-based instrumental works will be issued over the next couple of years – this first volume rounds up music that emerged from a 2-day session in London orchestrated by producer Drew Brown (Lower Dens, Blonde Redhead, Beck), between himself, Perri, Susumu Mukai (Zongamin) and M J Silver (Mickey Moonlight) after learning that Perri was a huge fan of both Mukai and Silver’s work.

 Off World 1 resists easy categorisation: not ambient “easy listening”, not strictly “improvised”, not “retro” – but eccentrically absorbing and soothingly mischievous electronic instrumentals, where vintage synthesizers and drum machines bubble and lurch, testing boundaries of melody and structure, with occasional accents from traditional/acoustic instrumentation. The result is genuinely exploratory, peculiar, warm and sui generis electronic music that sounds like it could have issued from any time in the past 40-50 years.

Off World 1 is out now. Find more details and order info at the official album release page.
