Composer, producer, keyboard player, improvisor, songwriter, sound-designer, label director Daniel Biro grew up in Italy and France before moving to London and so carries with him a healthy dose of mixed European cultural flavours.
After touring with various bands, Biro (pronounced Bee-ro) founded the experimental label Sargasso as well as the media music production company Ambient Arts Agency and released 12 albums as a solo artist and in collaboration with his various outfits such as ‘Mysteries of the Revolution’ and ‘Echo Engine’.
Other projects have ventured into more experimental territories, from a-cappella vocals to pure electronic explorations to alt-rock songs. He has also written soundtracks for award-winning films, dance/theatre performances and art installations.
Daniel's genre-defying music can be found somewhere between Berlin-style electronics, 70s jazz fusion keyboards and ambient/minimalist soundscapes.
