Giles Perring & The Exchange

In 2021 Giles created an extension of his Exchange project by launching a band to perform his music.

The band takes on his frequently sparse, but strikingly melodic musical sketches, which take inspiration from minimalism, traditional acoustic musics, and musique concrete, in an approach which nods to the approach of, but only very infrequently sounds like jazz and improvised music.

Giles vision for The Exchange affirms the idea that a band is a social melting pot which takes compositions and projects the identities of the musicians through its collective interpretation of the music.

A new album appears on 14 April

Dunoon Burgh Hall supported Giles to bring The Exchange to play in the town, as the venue’s first concert at the end of lockdown. Watch some clips below.
