PERphORMER-KOMpOzER VIDYO & BIOGRAFIA
1.SCHUBERT / 2.GRANELLI QUARTET / 3.BEATBOXOPHONE
Dani’s debut solo recording has been called “powerful” (Christos Hatzis) and “truly brilliant” (Mike Murley).
Dani earned a JUNO nomination for his studio work in the Jerry Granelli Trio, and his touring performances were praised: “an extraordinary reed player” (Jazz Chronicles). The trio’s second recording, in collaboration with Mike Murley, won a 2016 ECMA for Best Jazz Recording.
His duo album with Sageev Oore, Radical Cycle, was recorded for CBC, lauded as “stunning” and “masterful” (Classical Modern Music Review), and nominated for a 2013 ECMA for Best Classical Recording.
1.FILM MUSIC / 2.BODY & SOUL / 3.SAX & DANCE
Dani’s music is featured in over twenty specials for CBC and Bravo in collaborations with artists across different traditions, including soundtracks for his sister Jasmine Oore’s award–winning films, and electronic, orchestral, and big band compositions commissioned by new music and jazz festivals.
He cofounded, fronted, and composed much of the music for the popular award–winning group Gypsophilia, before he left to live in the desert. Along the way, his desire to connect with others has found him working in international collaborations across disciplines, sometimes with himself in the role of dancer (for Sara Shelton Mann, Cory Bowles), choreographer (for Paul Schoenfield and for Alain Trudel conducting Stravinsky), actor (for Hannah Moscovitch & 2b theatre and for Jasmine Oore), and performance artist (at Festival of New Dance). Early on, Dani’s creative process and philosophy inspired a film by Larry Jackman and a radio doc for national CBC.
