danielle dahl (b. 1989)
I'm a Norwegian composer, performer and improviser currently situated in Copenhagen, Denmark. In my solo work and compositions I am currently exploring psychoacoustic phenomenas, noise and developing extended techniques for playing very high pitched sounds. I'm also interested in more conceptual ways of addressing the classical concert situation, be it giving up my own control of the piece to a computer, focus fatigue, or the playing of a Van-Halen riff for a very long time.

My music is often quiet (or very loud, it’s kind of the same thing) and is developed and played over long stretches of time with few elements. As Blaise Pascal says: «all of man’s problems come from his inability to sit quietly in a room alone». So I’m working on that. You can see a list of future and past pieces under «works».

Currently I’m working on commissions for the chamber ensemble Aksiom and the guitar duo View From Nowhere. The latter with hexaphonic pick-ups by Paul Rubenstein and A LOT of amplifiers. My works has been performed at Nordic Music Days, Scandinavian Saxophone Festival and Musikprotokoll, by, among others, SNIM (AUT), Rudolf Bjørnerem (NO) and SCENATET (DK).

I play saxophone and EWI in the freejazz/noise trio tigers mind, acoustic drones with daniel lercher (AUT), as well as ring modulated piano, sine waves and keyboards in Lumpy Space Princess, a sort of experimental space folk band, and also sacrilegious, poppy tekno in Dirty Nun Tekno Crew.

As a saxophonist and improviser I’ve worked with, among others: Niklas Adam, Paul Lovens, Susanna Gartmayer, Agnes Hvizdalek, Kresten Osgood, Mattin, Jim Denley, Anders Vestergaard, Henrik Nørstebø.
