Spontaneous and open-mindend, forging connections between diverse soundworlds and a unquenchable urge to create most definitely typify composer, Danny de Graan (1973).

De Graan is a composer who regularly looks over the hedge of classical music. In fact, he hails from its proberbial neighbors. Having started as one half of a techno duo (a genre in which he is still active as Dan Grain), he is now actively building on a wayward body of work. Averse to thinking in rigid categories, often for exciting instrumental combinations, electronics, and unusual sound sources.
