Lost Garden was a project by Nick Robinson and Andy Peake (ex Comsat Angels) creating a dark ambient (or pick your own genre!) sound. They mix quasi-improvised instrumental pieces with more structured forms.
Their debut album was Cotyledon on English Electric Records. 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.
