Born in England, Daniel Wood (1974- ) was raised in the San Francisco Bay Area and received his training in composition and horn in Los Angeles. He enjoys crafting music for small forces spinning a conversational narrative and creating works with subtle shadings. His works favor intimate groups including brass, wind and string chamber music, steel drum ensembles and jazz combos. Recent commissions include “Blinding Light” and “Too Many Cliches” from the Presidio String Trio, “Searching for Attleby” from Teal Crane, and “Hot Date with Destiny” from the Avenue Winds. His music is published by Solid Wood Publishing and can be heard on the Quadre Record label.
