Biography
Merging jazz, pop and classical roots it comes as no surprise that the music of Daniel Biro sounds so distinctive. Of Hungarian descent, Biro spent his first years in Rome, grew up in France and has been living and working in London (UK) since 1985. During his keyboard studies at the Jazz Conservatory of Monaco and Nice University (France) he put together a series of experimental bands and wrote the music for several theatrical productions. This resulted in an early use of electronic instruments and an interest in visual performance which is reflected in all his work.

In 1993 he founded the SARGASSO label to promote contemporary experimental and avant-garde music. His long-term collaborators include choreographer Jane Turner, singer songwriter Orange, sound designer Mike Willox and guitarist Rob Palmer. His three CDs have been critically acclaimed in the UK and abroad.

Biro's 'love affair' with the Fender Rhodes electric piano has led him to develop new sound exploration techniques for the instrument. His latest works are concerned with the parallels between music composition, recent scientific theories like Chaos and Complexity, and spirituality.
