The main instruments of this composer, musician, improviser and sound artist, are the soprano saxophone and electronic and electro-acoustic systems, personally customized with a distinct low-tech character. His work focuses on the development of a musical performance language using amplified objects. As part of this process, Daniel plays on an amplified bicycle.
Similar to any standard musical instrument, playing the bicycle instrument entails certain physical gestures. Daniel, an avid bicycle enthusiast, reveals the connection between a rider’s relationship with his/her bicycle and the musician’s relationship with his/her musical instrument.
