David Cooper Orton

What is this?
Darkroom was formed in 1996 to provide a live soundtrack at the Nevers Film Festival, France. Their debut album ‘Daylight’ was released in 1998 on the 3rd Stone label; since then they have released six further albums and made numerous live appearances including at the Glastonbury festival, Omsk, Sprawl, the Digital-Analogue Cambridge festival and the Internationales Loopfestival Zürich 2005.
Darkroom represent a crossing point between avant-free jazz improvisation and Fripp/Eno-style ambient looping. Often by turns beautiful and beautifully ugly, this is a very human music despite the inevitable technology that produces it.
Vocal live-looping, instant choirs that range from the totally out there to the medieval in sound.
