Spotlight: Auditorium

Auditorium are French brother & sister duo Raph and Laura, who write luscious downtempo music. Their music and album artwork is characterized by a deep nostalgic warmth and surreal yet sublime beauty, which shifts effortlessly from ethereal dance music to pure chill-out. From the start, it’s been really important to them to view the music and the artwork as one artistic entity. Each of their tracks is constructed as an independent story within their universe. For them, Auditorium is not just music, it’s a planet in another galaxy…

They both started learning acoustic instruments when they were very young; Raph learning drums, guitar and piano and Laura focusing on piano and singing. They have been recording and performing as Auditorium for the last three years.

They have wide eclectic tastes, ranging from trip hop to techno. Their music is influenced by artists including Steven Price, Russell Brower and James Horner. They are also deeply influenced by the many countries they have visited and lived in. This is particularly clear in the touches of ethnic music which feature in all their tracks.

To find out more about Auditorium, follow them on Clowdy and Facebook.

Joe is the Community and Marketing Manager and is currently finishing up a PhD in music at Birmingham Conservatoire and still hasn’t got over his addiction to coffee. He loves getting involved in crazy music projects and plays the bassoon, oboe, piano, recorder and guitar. He also makes lots of electronic music and loves collaborating. He sings too if you ask nicely and once shamefully sang as a backing singer for Will Young. When he’s not moaning about the state of the music industry or public transport in Manchester, he works with the Twine community and handles social media, the blog and partnerships with companies and institutions.
