Daniel Fawcett

486052_614670695226750_942559428_nDaniel Fawcett is a composer who is seeking to explore both new and interesting sound worlds. Combined with an interest in the musical traditions of non-western cultures he does not seek to create a fusion of styles, but instead lets this clash between them take center stage. Additionally, his interest in less-traditional instruments has influenced him to write music incorporating some rather eclectic instruments including: trash cans, gongs/tam tams and amplified cactus. This approach has led to a highly improv-based way of writing that seems to give an interesting experience to both audiences and performers alike. He owes nearly everything he has learned to his teachers Stacy Garrop and Kyong Mee Choi who have helped him while pursuing his bachelor’s degree in Music Composition while at Roosevelt University.
