Alfred Weisberg-Roberts , known under the pseudonym of Daedelus , is a Compositeur talented of electronic music originating in West Coast American and currently living with Los Angeles.
He very early learns how (6 years) to play of the clarinet and low (at 10 years). Eclectic spirit since adolescence, Daedelus as well belonged to a punk group as of a group of " surfing rock" or of jazz. But feeling with narrow in plural configurations, it starts to compose its pieces only. Rubbing with the electronica, with the abstract hip hop, the techno or the Brazilian rates/rhythms, Daedelus each time tries to introduce a key of romanticism into its albums. The album " Invention" was, according to its words, " a disc in connection with a frame of mind, a love letter at the time Victorienne" (resulting from an interview given at the time of a passage to Paris on September 13rd, 2005 to the http://www.bokson.net/hiphop/inter/163.html) site.

Far from the flashes of the media life, this artist with the face of naive teenager is however not with its first first attempt since it already signed on step badly of recognized labels and collaborated of it with many figures of the electronic music or hip hop: Busdriver, MF Doom, including all taxes, Prefuse 73, Mike Ladd, Hard Abstract. It is in collaboration with Laura Darling, his wife, that it leaves in 2005 the album " The Long Lost". This one is entirely acoustic, it playing of the flute, him of the guitar, singing both.
The principal characteristic of the music of Daedelus is its freshness and its overflowing inventiveness. On the same album, one can hear samples resulting from musical comedies of the years '50, the flows contemporary rappeurs, happy solid masses which make shake the head without preamble, The pieces involve the listener in their constant good mood and following the example TekiLatex in the piece " Exquis" corpse; , it gives desire for singing and for being trotted by one Sunday shone upon in country lanes: " I always rise good foot by having my breakfast I want to say Yeah!
