Still working on that hot first release.



In it’s current form, the band is composed of:

Donnie DiMartino, megalomaniac Barytone, eccentric author and co-composer of the songs

Salossin Freeman, Guitarist and multi-instrumentalist, specializes in concrete music, film music and free jazz. He co-composes the Dark Blue repertoire.

Valentin Mussou, Cello. Of classical background, Valentin burnt his scores and has toured with the likes of Woodkid and Lulu Gainsbourg, and his absolute ear is an endless source of upset within the band. 

Stephen Harrison, double bass. Founder of one of Brian Eno’s favourite band, the Sons of the Desert, Stephen is a cult figure in the Parisian underground club scene where he tours with the infamous Fantasio and various projects from jazz to Klezmer through Irish Folk.

Jeremy Laine, drums. With several years touring with a power trio called «The Perfect Idiots», specialist in medieval drumming, Jeremy brings raw power to the rather elaborate melodic structure of the Dark Blue Orchestra’s live sets.

Pierre Favrez, Sound engineer for the band «Archive» alongside the famed Spike Jones, Pierre specializes in recording string ensembles and new recording techniques. He has received the highest distinctions of the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique.

Raphael Bancou, classical pianist and musical arranger/scorer for theater and film. His hobbyhorse is to put triggers anywhere he can, so his suit and even his shoes can launch musical samples and image clips.
