Daniel Potter

Dan is a music producer, composer, multi-instrumentalist, teacher, DJ and experimentalist.  He fuses new technologies, live performance and his imagination to challenge ideas of format, the role of the audience in live music and the purpose of music in our everyday lives. From DJing and producing electronic music to composing and performing Classical music, studying music at Goldmiths and The Royal College of Music, organising a multitude of events and parties, he has a huge appetite to work and collaborate with others and an openness which is clearly embedded into the music that he creates.

Dan recently released his critically acclaimed debut album ‘Warchestra’, which combines orchestral instruments, drum machines, synthesizers and vocals and includes collaborations with Kate Tempest, Charlie Stark and other local South East London and Brazilian musicians.  On top of the sold out live shows with his 12 piece ensemble, he produced a full live ambisonic showcase of the album at the Albany Theatre using a 29 channel 360 sound system in collaboration with 3D sound specialists ‘Call & Response”.   He is currently working on a new album, a 360° immersive opera and curating a London 3D sound festival for April 2019.
