HNM Records is proud to present a split single by The CPM Connection and Harsh Noise Movement.
Back in 2012, veteran Cerebral Palsy Midlands service user and rock music fan, Gary Ironmonger, began participating in electric guitar jam sessions with then volunteer tutor, Matthew Hale.
The development of the project since then has been something of a phenomenon. With the addition of more donated instruments and a steady increase in attendance from a diverse group of other CPM service users, these sessions (collectively known as The CPM Connection) have provided an awesome platform for expression and interaction.
Matthew (also known by his stage name Miles Perhower) is a prominent figure within the alternative rock and arts community in Birmingham, and is now an enthusiastic member of the Cerebral Palsy Midlands team. Through this inspirational and often highly creative work, he and his technical assistant, Ben Linstead, are constantly looking for new ways to adapt these music sessions to meet the various and sometimes complex needs of service users.
Primary Aims for CPM Connection are to:
Enrich the lives of individuals through sound expression, communication and teamwork.
Build confidence and motivation.
Educate on live performance, instrument maintenance and studio recording.
Experience performing relevant live shows in the public sphere.
Simultaneous Eruptions. A mix of live jams and studio beatbox experiments spliced under duress (haha) with key members supervising the mixing process. A concentrated combined blast of CPM!
Beats by Sean is a human beatboxer from Birmingham, United Kingdom.
