Daedelus: The Bittereinders

Please note: Info provided by the Event Organiser

The LA-based sonic explorer debuts his new live audiovisual show in London, closing his End of Empire trilogy with new album The Bittereinders.

Enter Daedelus’ world of mystic overtones, marrying ancient requiem with township jazz and electronic music by way of drone, pipe organ wheezes and incessant beats.

The Bittereinders follows 2014’s The Light Brigade and 2010’s Righteous Fists of Harmony, all on Brainfeeder.

Daedelus, aka Alfred Darlington, is a pioneer and standard-bearer for experimental electronics, and newly minted faculty at Berklee College of Music.


Daedelus appearing at this event

Daedelus is the alias of the equally portentous sounding Alfred Weisberg-Roberts, a classically trained clarinettist turned electronist from Santa Monica with a penchant for Edwardian garb and a record collection of epic proportions. Prolific and mercurial his numerous albums collage samples from diverse sources including such odd bedfellows as 50s sci-fi kitch, hip hip and Nat King Cole!
