Daniel James Burke, composer-performer

Equally influenced by atonal modern classical, the ambient music of Brian Eno, the nuanced and free improvisation approach of AMM, the chamber pop of Burt Bacharach, and the industrial machinations of Throbbing Gristle, minimalists Reich and Glass, as well as jazz, rock, prog, & punk, Dan has been playing with sound since the early 80’s as Illusion of Safety releasing over 40 full length recordings and performing over 300 concerts worldwide. He is currently working in a rotating trio improv format with drummer Erik Sowa (+Jeb Bishop, Cory Bengtsen, and/or Jeffrey Goulet), recording & performing in a synthesizer context as Soundoferror, in an ambient project, Twilight Furniture, and in singer-songwriter mode as Daniel James Burke. He has also collaborated in composition, live performance, or recorded with Jim O’Rourke, Darin Gray, Kevin Drumm, Jeb Bishop, Jon Mueller, & Olivia Block, et. al. He has also collaborated in ensemble groups CHEER-ACCIDENT, Tertium Quid (w/ Bill Horist & Dave Abramson), and Total Sound (w/Chris Block).
