New album - 100% made in Live

Post by os » Thu Oct 23, 2008 11:52 am

Darkroom's new album - Some Of These Numbers Mean Something - is their
8th to date, and marks the 10th anniversary of their first (Daylight)
released by 3rd Stone in 1998.

The original brief for the new album was: guitar under a microscope.

In places it's the heaviest Darkroom album yet, but also the most
accessible, combining 70s space rock, 80s Sheffield electronica, 60s
guitar instrumentals and 90s post rock.

Mixing classic synthesizer & guitar tones with contemporary post-production,
this album combines improvisation with carefully crafted and layered
arrangement, and rewards repeated listening.

From Santana & Tangerine Dream to Cocteau Twins & Tortoise: file under
ambient stadium rock.

Mastered by award-winning engineer Jon Astley (The Who, Led Zeppelin)
with a classic Carl Glover sleeve.

Darkroom are
Michael Bearpark - electric guitars, pedals, loops and feedback,
acoustic guitar, bass
Andrew Ostler - synthesizers, programming
Andrew Booker - drums

Os and Mike have made music together since 1992.

Darkroom was formed in 1996 with singer Tim Bowness (No-Man) to
provide a live soundtrack at the Nevers Film Festival, France.

Since 'Daylight' in 1998 they have released six further albums and
made numerous live appearances including Glastonbury and the
Internationales Loopfestival Zürich 2005.

Os and Mike are currently mainstays of Improvizone, a regular
London-based night of improvised instrumental music run by Andrew

Mike is just back from touring as a guitarist with No-Man.

Os writes music software which is a key component of the Darkroom sound.

Run by artists for artists, Burning Shed is an online label and store
specialising in Singer-Songwriter, Progressive, Ambient/Electronica
and Art Rock music.
