Sandro Perri makes music within a broad spectrum of sound, as a composer, producer, instrumentalist, and singer. In 2003, Constellation Records released his debut full-length under the the name Polmo Polpo. Like Hearts Swelling featured five tracks of looped strings, guitar, percussion and electronics, creating a meditative record of “perfectly structured, unstructured sound” (Pitchfork). What’s followed has been an extensive and critically acclaimed discography under both Polmo Polpo and Sandro Perri monikers. 2011s Impossible Spaces was dubbed one of the “Top 50 Records of 2011” (Pitchfork) as well as one of the “Top 50 Toronto Records of All Time” (Now Magazine). In live performance, Perri has appeared at Primavera Sound, All Tomorrow’s Parties, MUTEK, Nuit Blanche, and various other festivals. In studio, Perri has provided various levels of assistance as producer and engineer to a range of artists in Canada and abroad. In addition to studio work, he played lap steel guitar with folk-pop group Great Lake Swimmers between 2000-2005.
