Humm ... Why does Daniel play guitar ? ... Well he is not given a choice it seems.
Since this is about music I would like to start with listing which recordings of guitarists
that have made the biggest impact on my life ... through out the years.
But all in all Robert Fripp (King Crimson) and Mike Stern have been my two biggest heros :-)
I love the melancholy in Fripps playing and the power and drive in Sterns.
And this wonderful jazz duo is not my only musical love.

And what else does / did Daniel do:
I have built all kinds of studio electronic equipment and electronic equipment for musicians.
Culminating in a production of my MIDI controlled guitar Tube preamp called 'Simply Dangerous'.
A nice little beast which can add a bit of tube warmth to full out distortion
... and a super great chorus.
Somewhere along the line I picked up an Electrical Engineering degree from the University of Waterloo
and ended up working for Danmarks Radio for 15 years as their Digital Audio specialist ...
and all round audio guy...building studios and broadcast infrastructure for the Media House called DR-Byen.
I love playing around with cars and have rebuild my little classic BMW from bottom to top ...
including many modifications and my own high performance motor.
I am interested in science, physics and cosmology.
What is really going on down there and out there.
And while I am at ... what is going on inside there ... Buddism and Zen,
the science of seeing without the filter and prejudice of the mind getting in the way.
In conjunction with this, had the privilege of being a student of Kenneth G. Mills when I was young.
My wonderful son, Julian, is also into music and composes constantly on the computer.
Here you can check out some of his tunes:

And his fabulous tunes with the singer Lachi 'Namaste' and 'What I Want'
I have written a childrens story about a little mouse which tried to get away
from the big cities noise and stress ... And moves to Canada's north ... has some big adventures,
gets captured by an owl ... but it all works out in the end.
A story about intergration ... in our intollerant times ...
Below are some pictures from the story. You can read the whole story here :
