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.
Sadly, Andy’s schedule didn’t allow him to continue with the project, so Nick is using the moniker for his solo work. Their projected second album “Senescence” has been released on bandcamp.
