Jamie Perera is a composer who likes to use relevant sound in meaningful ways. Examples of this approach include using radio static for an Emmy nominated film about child poverty in the USA, making music from prime numbers with Oxford's Simonyi Professor Marcus Du Sautoy, recording fists striking the human body as a drum for a C4 series on gang violence, sequencing car parts for Chevrolet, sonifying climate change for The Serpentine Gallery and creating a soundtrack out of guns for Amnesty International.
Jamie has over 9 years of experience analysing and workshopping audio identity and composing for brands such as Nokia, Harrods, Whatsapp, Sony and Ubisoft. He is a lead consultant and composer for The Sound Agency, a world leading agency for brand sound. He also owns and runs jpmusiclibrary.com, a "fair to composers" music supervision and licensing service with over 150 composers on its roster.
Jamie has been released worldwide as Lo Freq alongside Cinematic Orchestra, Mark Ronson and Matthew Herbert. His recent writing collaboration with Lubomyr Melnyk for his album Rivers and Streams on Erased Tapes Records received five stars in The Guardian with critical acclaim around the world.
His passion is in challenging the conventions between music and sound whilst still making accessible music, and in encouraging the happening of ‘happy accidents’ in his work. His influences include Steve Reich, Jonny Greenwood, Cliff Martinez and The Books.
