Fonia Session 28 – Daedelus


A friendly hello und welcome to the 28th and our last fonia radio show for this year! This time it was all about the wiz of beats Daedelus! We had the chance to dine and chat with Daedelus about pretty much everything including the amazing experience of coffee, global traveling, flora & fauna, favourite places, arts and most of all his love for living music.

In the second part of the show we are especially glad to present you a live cut from Daedelus’ performance in Jena’s Kassablanca Club as part of the chopywood serie of shows. Thank you all for listening. Super special thanks go out to Daedelus for taking the time to chat with us. Deep bow and respect to the people who came up with the light concept that night in the Kassablanca.

Enjoy the show!
Have all a merry xmas & a happy start into 2015!!!
And be good to yourself!



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 collaborates with musicians in many worlds: electronic, jazz, hip-hop, etc. His music runs the gamut of emotion, alternately intense and mellow, exuberant and melancholy, danceable and 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.
