Scaling Snowdon (Slow Climb Version) by Daedelus
Daedelus isn't a paint-by-numbers musician. From how he looks (early Victorian Dandyism), to how he makes music, or how he expresses himself and views the world, his is a very individual 'bespoke' outlook. When asked to envision his visit to Room 205, Daedelus decisively stated, "I would like to perform at a seance in a Victorian parlor accompanied by ghosts. Conjuring the music, so to speak."
Alfred Darlington was born in Santa Monica, CA in 1977 to an artist mother and professor father. Musical from very early on, as a child he was classically and jazz-trained in a number of instruments, but his interests were broad and varied - less a prodigy than a renaissance boy whose obsessions ranged from Greek legend to the mountains of Wales. As a 15-year old, whilst in a YWCA in London he flipped the radio dial, found a pirate radio station and taped some UK rave and hardcore. "It was my first 'Eureka!' moment in music," he says.
