Born and raised in Paris and currently residing 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).
Performances of his concert music have been held at the Broad Museum, MASS MoCA, the Hollywood Bowl, Carnegie Hall, The Barbican, Sadler's Wells, the Holland Festival and MoMA PS1, performed by ensembles such as the San Francisco Symphony (Soundbox series), the Chicago Symphony Orchestra (MusicNOW series), the Los Angeles Philharmonic, The London Contemporary Orchestra, New York Youth Symphony, the Bang on a Can All-Stars, the American Symphony Orchestra, So Percussion, and the Calder Quartet, among others. He has also composed on various media projects for Luca Guadagnino, Patty Jenkins, Robert Zemeckis, Morgan Neville, and collaborated with artists Jóhann Jóhannsson, David Lang, Julia Holter, Laurel Halo, and Son Lux.
His latest album Etat was recently released on Nonesuch and New Amsterdam Records. Upcoming projects include collaborations with the Cincinnati Symphony and chamber orchestra Alarm Will Sound, as well as a new score for the 5th season of HBO’s Search Party.
A graduate of the doctoral program at the Yale School of Music, Daniel studied with David Lang, Martin Bresnick, Aaron Kernis and Ingram Marshall.
