Daniel Skoglund (SE)

Daniel is a Swedish sound artist working in the field of electronic arts. His activities include composition, installation art and performance – often in a musical context. By constructing and building new instruments to produce and control sound he is looking for alternative ways of both creating and experience music. These instruments are controlled by choices and chance rather than by skill and virtuosity. Daniel also uses field recordings and computers to create sounds and music.

From the beginning of the nineties until 2003 he was part of the sound art duo 8tunnel2 known for their performance with electrified and sounding vegetables. Since then he has been working solo as well as in collaborations with musicians, artists and dancers. He has done commissioned music for EMS (Institute for Electro acoustic Music in Sweden) and, together with Swedish poet Fredrik Nyberg, produced text-sound compositions for the Swedish radio.
