Daniel Scheidt

Composer Daniel Scheidt is a body of Canadian pc music. His functions are essentially created for the soloing device and interacting software applications. Scheidt was raised in the province of Alberta, Canada. He initial examined percussion and structure at the School of Victoria (United kingdom Columbia), but his curiosity about technology, and specially the usage of the pc being a compositional device, drove him to review pc research at Queen’s School (Kingston, Ontario). After several pieces for single piano and Synclavier in the first ’80s, he considered pc creation. His initial works in the middle-’80s are single pc parts, but he quickly considered writing applications that could interact in real-time with an improviser. Several world-renowned music artists commissioned parts from him, including trombonist George Lewis, percussionist Trevor Turesky, and clarinetist Lori Freedman. Types of his parts for instrumentalist and pc are noted on his initial CD, Actions/R√©actions, released in 1991 on Empreintes DIGITALes.
