Somnambulist Quintet

Somnambulist Quintet

Real Name:
Darren Johnson
Profile:
Somnambulist Quintet is an electronic jazz music project by Darren Johnson which attempts to blur the boundaries between electronic sampling and live performance. The music is notable for its tense and unpredictable shifts and turns, as well as its detailed sampling of saxophone and percussion. Seemingly improvised jazz recordings are in fact hand written and then digitally stitched together from single hit samples which have been edited individually for pitch, length, and timbre. Piano and bass, however, are performed live.
