User Bio

I am a found sound/live looping/multi-instrumentalist and professional percussionist/drummer who also makes lo fi toy digital, trailing edge cellphone and webcam "animations" of my abstract electronic music compositions

I founded the Y2k Live Looping series which holds it's annual festival in the third weekend of October every year. We've had over 200 live loopers perform from 15 countries over the past 8 years of it's existence.

Please contact me if you are interested in performing at this wonderful festival/convention.

Recently, I have developed a system that allows the projection of a video on a performer that will track their movements on stage....the musician becomes the video, in other words. Additionally, I have developed the Walker Manual Glitch Pedal and am beginning to work on a new piece of software that will allow the synchronization of live video and live looping via midi.

I live in Santa Cruz with my wife, Chris Wedertz, a talented singer/songrwriter/multi-instrumentalist.

    This is just awe-inspiringly beautiful! I'm going right now, in the middle of the night, to start work on my next video because I"m so inspired by this work. Congratulations, Dan! I can't wait to see where you go next with your artistry! Rick…
