Autorotation are an electro-acoustic pop band from London, UK. Combining real voices and acoustic instruments with laptops, synths, samplers and visuals, they create compelling and unique live performances. Robyn Sellman, Laura Tanner and Igor Olejar are multi-instrumentalists who are not afraid to experiment with instruments, sounds and arrangements within a relatively conventional pop song format. With
influences ranging from Kate Bush and David Sylvian to Aphex Twin and Laibach, Autorotation are at the same time accessible, intriguing and experimental.
Growing up in the Thames Valley in the UK, Tim Ingham stood shoulder to shoulder with the likes of Slowdive at local gigs but his own musical endeavours didn’t get off the ground until he found he could use a laptop to create his own electronic version of the kind of warm, hazy sounds that he had gravitated to since his youth. Winterlight’s music lives somewhere adrift in the hazy moments of life when happiness and sadness are indistinguishable.
