I am Daniel Schnee: ethnomusicologist (PhD), quarter-tone saxophonist, drummer/percussionist, columnist, graphic score composer, international clinician, book reviewer, and former mentee of both legendary Japanese artist Shozo Shimamoto, and Pulitzer Prize/Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award™ winning saxophonist Ornette Coleman.
My works have been performed, exhibited, or published in 24 countries. I have also accompanied many Juno, American Music, Canadian Country, and Grammy Award™ winning artists, and my score CHOLLOBHAT was included in the sequel to John Cage’s groundbreaking graphic score anthology Notations.
Here at my blog you will find posts about East Asian aesthetic culture, philosophy, Japan, classic Chinese literature, jazz improvisation, and so on, so feel free to start exploring and have fun.
