    Petrels is the moniker of London-based musician Oliver Barrett. Having played in various bands, Oliver has put out several Petrels releases on various labels internationally including Denovali, Tartaruga, and Patient Sounds. As a composer he has had work commissioned by the BFI, London Word Festival and the Southbank Centre amongst others, and as a performer has played with artists ranging from Duane Pitre to Steve Beresford to Damo Suzuki. A multi-instrumentalist, Oliver's musical practice ranges from solo electronics, acoustic improvisation, band work, and sound art, to orchestral arrangements and song, drawing influences from a broad spectrum.

    Petrels debut album 'Haeligewielle' quickly sold out its limited run upon release on Tartaruga Records in 2011 after making several best of the year lists before being re-issued on cult German label Denovali in 2012. Follow-up album 'Onkalo' received rave reviews after its release in early 2013, and third album, 'Mima', was released this year. Drawing inspiration from sources as wide-ranging as the Space Race, Angela Carter, early Cosmology, M. John Harrison, witchcraft, Iain M. Banks Culture novels, and the films of Apichatpong Weerasethakul, Mima is another immersive sonic landscape from Petrels - more interested in posing questions than providing easy answers.
