Born and raised in Paris, and currently living in Los Angeles, Daniel Wohl's music blends electronics with acoustic instrumentation to often "surprising and provocative effect" (NPR). He has produced albums, orchestral and chamber works, film, television and ballet scores, and has received critical praise as one of his generation’s "imaginative, skillful creators" (New York Times) making music that is "beautiful...original" (Pitchfork).
Recent performances of his music have been held by the San Francisco Symphony (Soundbox series), the Chicago Symphony Orchestra (MusicNOW series), the Los Angeles Philharmonic (Hollywood Bowl), New York Youth Symphony (Carnegie Hall), the Bang on a Can All-Stars (Barbican), and has been performed at venues including the Broad Museum, MASS MoCA, the Holland Festival and MoMA Ps1. Recent and upcoming projects include, 8 minutes, a new ballet score for London's Sadler's Wells choreographed by Alexander Whitley, performances with the London Contemporary Orchestra (Kings Place, UK), and Slagwerk den Haag (Rewire, NL), as well as a new piece for the Minneapolis based band Polica and the S t a r g a z e ensemble from Berlin commissioned by Symphony Space (NY), the Cross Linx Festival (Netherlands) and supported by a residency at MASS MoCA.
In 2016 Holographic, Daniel's sophomore album was released on New Amsterdam Records. Commissioned by the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art, the Indianapolis Museum of Art, the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra's Liquid Music Series, and the Baryshnikov Arts Center, the music from the album was deemed "aggressive and gorgeous" (NPR) with an electroacoustic blend that was "expertly handled" (Pitchfork).
Collaborations are at the center of his practice, and he has enjoyed working with a number of ensembles and artists such as the the American Symphony Orchestra, So Percussion, Julia Holter, Lucky Dragons, Laurel Halo, the Calder Quartet, Indianapolis Symphony, eighth blackbird, and Son Lux. He has also worked on projects with Jóhann Jóhannsson, The Haxan Cloak, serpentwithfeet and Holy Other.
Daniel recently completed the scores for Berlinale selections Elixir (2015), Veronica (2017) as well as The Color of Time, which features James Franco, Jessica Chastain and Mila Kunis. He is currently creating the music for the television show "Search Party" (TBS)
A graduate of the doctoral program at the Yale School of Music, Daniel studied with David Lang, Martin Bresnick, Aaron Kernis and Ingram Marshall. He is a recipient of three ASCAP Young Composers awards, as well as grants from the Barlow Foundation, New Music USA, the Brooklyn Arts Council and the Jerome Foundation.
