Of Hungarian background, London-based polymath Daniel Biro (composer, keyboard player, producer, improvisor, songwriter, sound-designer, label director, video artist) grew up in Italy and France, where he studied jazz with Roger Grosjean, and so carries with him a healthy dose of mixed European cultural flavours.
He moved to London in 1985 and, after touring with numerous bands, founded the experimental label Sargasso (www.sargasso.com).
Biro (pronounced Bee-ro) has released 12 albums as a solo artist and in collaboration with his various avant-jazz/ambient/song outfits such as ‘Mysteries of the Revolution’ and ‘Echo Engine’.
Daniel's music brings together three of the greatest progressive music traditions: Berlin-style electronics, prog rock synths and jazz fusion keyboards. Other projects of his have ventured into more experimental territories, from a-cappella vocal pieces to pure electronic explorations, as well as ambient/alt-rock songwriting. He has also written many scores for film, theatre, art installations and contemporary dance performances.
