“Endless Planets” (Brainfeeder)
Austin Peralta, a young pianist and composer based in Los Angeles, works as a musician in a diversity of contexts, both in LA and internationally. His third album brilliantly combines modernity with jazz tradition.
Having trained as a classical pianist from the age of 5, Peralta went on to incorporate the entire spectrum of contemporary music genres in his artistic palette, from jazz onward. In addition to his work as a pianist, he composes, collaborates on and produces music in a variety of different modes, taking in modern acoustic jazz, experimental hip-hop/electronica, world music and multi-media audio/visual pieces and much more. To date, Peralta has recorded two albums for the 88’s label, a Japanese subsidiary of Sony Music, heading up groups that featured such jazz luminaries as Ron Carter, Billy Kilson, Buster Williams, Steve Nelson, and Marcus Strickland. Other notable collaborations have included The Cinematic Orchestra, Flying Lotus, Erykah Badu, Thundercat, Shafiq Husayn of Sa-Ra, Jaga Jazzist, Miguel Atwood-Ferguson, Adam Rudolph’s Go: Organic Orchestra and Horace Tapscott’s Pan Afrikan People’s Arkestra, among many others. At the 2006 Tokyo Jazz Festival, Peralta was part of a jazz piano “dream team” alongside Hiromi Uehara and legends Chick Corea and Hank Jones. He has studied with such notables as Bruce Sutherland, Alan Pasqua, Buddy Collette and Reggie Workman.
Peralta is a member of the Brainfeeder roster along with Flying Lotus, Daedelus, The Gaslamp Killer, Strangeloop and many others. His third album, a self-produced project entitled “Endless Planets”, was recently released worldwide on the Brainfeeder label.
