  • David Cooper Orton 2016

    David Cooper Orton

    • Time: 12:30pm
    • Info: Initially inspired by the Beatles and Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac, he has survived a headlong rush through blues, "prog", fusion, punk, and jazz - plus: a failed audition with Henry Cow. Now living in Penarth, David's main musical focus is ambient guitar and "livelooping" - the use of digital technology to capture phrases of music and sound, then "loop" them to produce repeating patterns which gradually develope into evolving musical compositions. His palette of influences ranges from guitarists Pat Metheny, Bill Frisell, David Torn John Martyn and Nick Drake; minimalist composer Steve Reich; ambient guru Brian Eno; and music from around the world. ------------------------------------------------------------------- "Adept looping and a neo-minimalist compositional approach lie at the core of this wonderfully melodic and aurally exquisite collaboration between British guitarist David Cooper Orton and American upright bassist Steve Uccello" [Barry Cleveland reviewing the album Warp and Weft for Guitar Player magazine] "David Cooper Orton's eclectic set of folk, jazz and blues creates a beautiful sound...[using] guitar and electronics, he transfixes audiences with his ability to fill the stage with multiple layers of music from his one instrument" [Make it Yours programme notes, Glanfa Stage, Wales Millennium Centre] "Letter perfect...lyrical and groovacious" [Guitar Player magazine] "combines Frisell-like twang with minimalist delicacy" [Time Out magazine] "His style is delicate and pretty, in the style of ECM Records jazzers from the 70s or a John Martyn solo." [BUZZ magazine] "Cooper Orton, who describes himself as a 'bespoke ambient and jazz guitarist'...succeeded brilliantly...deploying his range of foot pedals to good effect to create ambient sound washes and a rich array of colours and textures". Ian Mann, reviewing the Gerard Cousins Project, Brecon Jazz Festival 2017,
