Sound and Movement

Dan Siegler is a composer, producer, and writer from New York City. His work combines electronic and organic elements, incorporating references to jazz, blues, and folk. These sound-first compositions are strongly influenced by musique concrète, employing a mixture of early analog synthesizers, traditional orchestration for strings, horns and woodwinds, glitch sound material, and field recordings. His music has been described as “eerie, churchly and jazzy…” by The Village Voice and “luxuriously mercurial” by Artforum.
