Daniel Scheidt

DANIEL SCHEIDT, after following studies in percussion, composition, and computing science, currently pursues an active interest in software as a compositional medium.

A respect for improvisation and live performance has led to the development of several personalized, computer-based instruments. Recent work focuses on interactive systems which respond to acoustic input from live performers. Scheidt's work has been broadcast by the CBC and presented in concerts, festivals, and conferences throughout Canada and Europe.

"I find the design of compositional structures intended for interactive exploration during performance to be an extremely intriguing approach to music making -- one in which I am able (perhaps forced) to investigate new relationships between composition and performance."
