With the international release of his Preparations EP on Tri-Angle Records, Wellington based producer/DJ FIS (Olly Peryman) displays compelling and virtually singular skill as an artist of sound. Taking to the sonic like a master sculptor approaches marble, he's carved out four idiosyncratic and immersive soundworlds deserving of close and sustained listening attention.

In the weeks leading up to the release of Preparations, Peryman found time outside of a schedule which includes a day job at Victoria University in Wellington’s Te Kura Māori school, an evening/weekend job at a bottle store, and ten hours of submerged music making a week, to trade a series of in-depth emails with Martyn Pepperell. We discussed the relationship between meditation and music making, immersive textures, interpretation of art, written language, Taonga pūoro, and how he ended up signing with Tri-Angle Records.
