Daedelus

Bio

Like his mythological namesake, Daedelus is an inventor, a creator of sonic labyrinths. He recombines sounds from an eclectic palette into an innovative genre all his own.

Otherwise known as Alfred Darlington, the Los Angeles producer has over two-dozen releases on a variety of labels and collaborations which bridge many worlds, including electronic, jazz, and hip-hop. His music runs the gamut of emotion, from exuberant to melancholy, danceable to introspective.

Daedelus has performed over a thousand shows for audiences on five continents, everywhere from Iceland to Istanbul. He is a founding father of the L.A. “Beat Scene,” often playing the storied Low End Theory club nights. 

Each live show is unique, employing Monome controllers and open-source software which allows for on-the-fly improvisation. The backdrop onstage is Daedelus’ collaborative invention Archimedes, a robotic array of moving mirrors which reacts to and reflects the performance.

Most recently, Daedelus has composed the soundtrack for the award-winning video game Nidhogg and was commissioned by UNESCO World Heritage to create a sound-portrait of emerging culture.
