There is a patient sway that Jim Perkin’s “Held” falls under. A movement flowing from four clarinet lines overlapping atop each other – overtones clashing in melodious and dynamic waves of tension and release. These lines are then re-amped through tape delay, even further sanding down the edges and bringing out the inherent melody in each line. A powerful and meditative work from the UK based artist.
