My guest this time is composer and sound-designer Daniel Williams. As a composer, he works mostly in the theatre, writing, playing and mixing live soundtracks with a variety of companies including DEREVO, Freaks und Fremde, Theatre Subversion, Das Gegenteil (Valentin Tszin), JuWie Dance Company, as well as with a variety of other dancers.
In addition his music has appeared in an installation at Tonlagen (Hellerau, Dresden 2010), in concerts at CYNETART (Dresden 2015), DAVE (Dresden 2014 and 2015), Tapei Soul (Taiwan 2016), and many other venues and events in Dresden and Berlin. His soundtrack for DEREVO’s ’Mephisto Walz’ won a special technicians prize (Broadway Baby) at the Edinburgh Festival in 2012. As a translator he made the English version of two catalogues for the OSTRALE Contemporary Art Exhibition in 2016 and 2017.
His music, as ghostradio, has been released by phonocake.org and Lockertmatik Records.
The music featured in this episode is taken from various soundtracks composed by Daniel for theatre works:
- Mephisto Waltz
- Craving (Lockertmatik Edit)
