Cellist extraordinaire, Danielle has performed both as a solo artist and with other outstanding improvising musicians including Cecil Taylor, Henry Kaiser, Paul Plimley, John Oswald, Buckethead, Lukas Ligeti, and Miya Masaoka. Danielle has worked quite extensively with improvisational music, analog and digital recording, electronics, and computers, developing interactive cello and electronic music pieces. Her improvisations are thoughtful and powerful compositions that interweave elements of contemporary jazz, classical, electronica, folk, blues, rock, and hardcore. Her sublime sound is adventuresome and exploratory yet maintains concrete form. "Her contributions are uniformly excellent." (Exclaim magazine). Danielle received her MFA in Electronic Music and Recording Media at Mills College, and her BFA in music from Smith College graduating Cum Laude. She has also studied at Berklee College of Music (90-92), the Center of New Music and Audio Technology (CNMAT, 95-96), and the New England Conservatory of Music (NEC, 82-86). She performs regularly in the Bay area with guitarist Henry Kaiser, and in Bottomfeeders with bassist Ashley Adams.
