Sheffield-based multi-instrumentalist & producer Yarni (AKA Benjamin Harris) has previously garnered support from the likes of Huey Morgan (who made previous release ‘Pigna’ his ‘Meat Of The Week’) Deb Grant (BBC 6 Music), Luke Unabomber (Worldwide FM), Jazz FM and the late, great Andrew Weatherall (who described him as an ‘Amazing Artist’), ‘Parenthesis’ is departure from the Jazz-infused sound of his previous musical offerings, adventuring into deeper electronic-focussed sonic territories.
Parenthesis was born out of the creative exchange between Yarni and GMM. The project wasn’t intended to become an album. More so a general swapping of ideas in the hope of composing some music and sharing each other’s experience in their musical fields.
