The Darkening Scale is one of the solo project of David Janssen, better known for his work with the experimental duo Renaldo and the Loaf . From 1970, until the group’s demise in 1986, David and Brian Poole (aka Renaldo M) worked together and produced a number of albums for The Residents’ Ralph Records label.
David was musically inactive from 1986 unti 2006, when a reunion with Brian in 2006 spurred David back into music making. Encouraged by Brian, David began working on remixing some old Renaldo and the Loaf material It was a short step from these remixes to working with non-Renaldo and the Loaf samples and The Darkening Scale was born.
