Lost Garden is a project led by Nick Robinson, creating a dark ambient (or pick your own genre!) sound. They mix quasi-improvised instrumental pieces with more structured forms.
On their debut album Cotyledon they were joined by Andy Peake (ex Comsat Angels). 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.
Their 3rd album, “Bunting Nook” is due out this autumn on Discus Music and features music created solely with the guitar.
