Dan is a performer/composer based in Adelaide, Australia. His work is characterised by a broad base of musical experience, reflected in a curious, experimental and genre defying compositional output linked together by a love of storytelling and sense of irreverence for existing forms.
From a performance perspective, there is always a focus on collaborative, open approaches to composition that stress the importance of performers’ creative input in musical expression.
Dan holds a Bachelor of Music (First Class Hons in Sonic Arts and Composition) from the University of Adelaide, and is a candidate for the Master of Philosophy (Sonic Arts). In 2015, he was in residence with Ensemble Offspring (Syd) as part of their Hatched Academy.
