” […] this is a brilliant and unique take on post-jazz, with moments of true beauty and dazzling sections of both instrumental prowess and technological creativity.”
“Das ist so eine Art meta-improvisierte Musik.[…] improvisiert, aufgezeichnet, verhackstückt und dazu dann wiederum weiterimprovisiert. Das ist wunderbar!”
” […] Viele wirklich ungewönhliche Soundexperimente auf dem Album von Loom & Thread.”

In his solo works Daniel Klein explores the realm trapped between analog and digital sound creation. His music is undoubtedly characterized by modern creativity, post-jazz elements, and experimentalism.
The analogue aspect of the acoustic drum introduces the freedom of infinite resolution in any musical parameter while digital sound manipulation is applied to push the music beyond the horizon of what the listener would expect.
This combination comes in handy when writing and producing music but its multidimensionality challenges the musician’s imagination in the process of creation through the sheer endless opportunities of sound qualities. Selfrestrainment is required and applied.
Daniel Klein is an educator for drums and rhythm-related ensembles at the „School of Music and Arts“ in Jena. He teaches private classes in his studios in Leipzig, Waldstraßenviertel & Großzschocher. If you are interested in taking lessons, please reach out via mail!
