March 24 – March 27 // Artists in Residence
Home City: Los Angeles
Dark Rooms is an atmospheric R&B band from Los Angeles. They have released two albums over the past several years, and their song, “I Get Overwhelmed”, was featured in the movie “A Ghost Story”, which came out in 2017.
During their artist residency here at the Music District, Dark Rooms hosted a public workshop covering their methods of incorporating new technology into their shows. For their live performances, Dark Rooms – like many bands – relies on technology to help them create their sound. The band covered their live setup, from the way they use Ableton and MIDI controllers to recreate studio sounds, to their desire to make that technology feel as present and interactive as possible.
Dark Rooms also played out to a sold-out crowd at Washington’s opening for Shel.
