“Digital Sunrise” is released

After two years in the making my new album “Digital Sunrise” is released today.

It is the result of two years of work and experimenting with different styles in instrumental music.

My studies took me from the early electronic sounds of the ’70s to the House beats of the early ’90s to the more recent emergence of the post-classical music coming out of Northern Europe.

You can buy and listen to the album in my Bandcamp store.

Hope you enjoy it.

Daniel Soffner.

Tropscore entry “Capture”

This year I participated in the Tropscore competition again which is part of the Tropfest Australia. The object of Tropscore was to produce a musical score or synch for a short film clip provided by Tropfest. The film for Tropscore 2014 was Capture, directed by Jen Gerber, a Finalist of Tropfest New York 2013. I created the soundtrack for it.

My new album “Pheonox” is released

After more than a year in the making my new album “Pheonox” with a new collection of ambient tracks was released this weekend.

The inspiration for the tracks came from a variety of sources – modern dance, films and soundtracks, theatre plays and ethnic music – that create a blended soundtrack accompanying our daily lives.

Listen to the album in our Bandcamp store.
There you can also download two tracks – “Illuminated” and “Heliocentric” – for free or buy the complete album.

Tropscore entry “Returning”

This year I participated in the Tropscore competition which is part of the Tropfest Australia. The object of Tropscore was to produce a musical score or synch for a short film clip provided by Tropfest. The film “Returning” was created by emerging Australian filmmaker Amelia Olsen-Boyd. I created the soundtrack for it.

I spent three months on a 3-minute score which tried to capture the ambient nature of this beautiful film. The hard work paid off eventually. My entry made it to the Top 20 (out of almost 900 entries).
