Kneebody
The collaboration between the instrumental quintet Kneebody and electronic musician Daedelus had its initial roots planted as far back as high school for old friends saxophonist Ben Wendel and Alfred Darlington. The pair's early musical kinship in southern California seeded a connection that grew through numerous collaborations, recordings and live performances over the years coming to fruition in an improvised performance in 2009 at "Jazz A Vienne" between their two primary music vehicles – Kneebody and Daedelus. When Wendel was awarded a composition grant through Chamber Music America it became a catalyst to write a series of pieces that would bridge the gap between the oft indescribable world of Kneebody and the unique aesthetic of Daedelus. When the quintet entered the studio with Darlington, the other members brought more compositions to the fore and the result is a 9-song set of original music that sits inside the rich pantheon of instrumental music, but with a modern sheen that takes the shape of a multi-headed beast straddling rock, jazz, and electronic music.
Daedelus
Daedelus has dedicated his musical career to the war against cliché. Like his mythological namesake, Alfred Darlington is an inventor, a craftsman, a constructor of labyrinths. Others get trapped in the maze; he knows how to build wings.
