Daniel Koppelman has experienced many different musical traditions, ranging from classical and popular to acoustic and electronic. His exploration has led him to search for new possibilities in performance, education, and creating music.
Koppelman's current interests include digital signal processing of acoustic piano and improvisation with various real-time controllers in conjunction with Cycling '74's Max/MSP and Ableton Live software. He has recorded for CRI, New World Records, Neuma Records, Capstone, SEAMUS, C74, Everglade, and Innova. His 2005 double album, "Escapement," was hailed by Keyboard Magazine as "engaging, intelligent, and unpretentious."
Koppelman has been a resident artist at STEIM in Amsterdam, the Institute of Sonology in The Hague, and the Center for Research in Computing and the Arts in La Jolla, Calif. In 2008, he was awarded a Fulbright Scholarship to teach American music and the creative use of new technological tools in Odessa, Ukraine. An avid performer, Koppelman combines with Ruth Neville to form the duo runedako. The duo's recent CD, "Recombinant Nocturnes," features music for piano and electronics by Benjamin Broening.
