Lost Garden are a dark ambient (or pick your own genre!) band performing quasi-improvised instrumental pieces. Nick Robinson brings fellow musicians on board.
Andy Peake (ex Comsat Angels) was featured on their debut LP Cotyledon. The two musicians meshed beautifully (often impossible to identify who plays what!) and compare the performance process to “painting with sound” where dynamics and timbre are key elements. They used keyboards, guitars and loops to improvise pieces – captured and taken back to the “studio” for re-arranging, mixing and post-treatment.
More recently, Jan Gilhooley (A Collection Of Notes) has been playing live with the band.
A new album is under way, due for release by the next pass of Halley’s comet.
