«Phonem» - biography, albums, songs, video clips

Elliott Perkins is an electronic musician born in England but currently residing in Leipzig, Germany.


He has released two full-lengths on Morr Music. He cites Autechre’s album “Tri Repetae” as a major influence.


In school he pursued linguistics, and his moniker ‘Phonem’ is derived from the word “phoneme”, a term used to denote a group of slightly different speech sounds which are treated the same way by speakers of a particular language; it is defined by Wikipedia as “the smallest segmental unit of sound employed to form meaningful contrasts between utterances”.
