Tommy Perman and Friends release a new album, entitled ‘Positive Interactions’, which is available as a free* download.
Constructed entirely from “happy sounds” sent to Perman, the 20 tracks – spanning 80 minutes of music – are available to download by anyone who sends the creator a *message about something that makes them happy.
Work on the album started last September, with the former member of experimental pop trio and arts collective Found calling on friends from around the world (including bandmates Kev Sim and Lomond Campbell) to contribute.
Also credited on the record are Pictish Trail, Jonnie Common, members of Modern Studies, SHHE, Pete Harvey, Bart out of Eagleowl, Onthefly, and Iglomat’s Sandy Carson.
Perman has most recently released ‘Sing the Gloaming’ in 2020, as well as ‘Emergent Slow Arcs’ for Fire Records the year before. He also won a BAFTA for co-creating an ‘emotional robot band’ called Cybraphon which is now part of the permanent collection in the National Museum of Scotland, while he has undertaken visual design work for various books, websites, record sleeves, and even projected on the Sydney Opera House.
