Bio

Daniel is a long-time member of the C4 Ensemble, and has written two choral compositions for the group. Pitter Patter, Pitter Patter, And Then was premiered by C4 in 2013, and DADA NY ’15 was written in celebration of C4’s tenth anniversary season, in 2015. Daniel studied composition and piano at The Purcell School of Music, London. His compositions won numerous awards, and were featured by the Society for the Promotion of New Music during 2000–2002. While studying at the University of Cambridge, his conducting engagements included regular appearances with the university ensemble Sforzando Brass as well as his college orchestra. His other big passion—besides music—is science. He moved to New York City to work in neuroscience research at the Rockefeller University and currently realizes his dual passions by working at Google on the one hand and making music with C4 on the other.
