Very active

Our dear friend Daniel, whom you all know by now, although we listened to him at the time without really knowing him, is a self-employed worker who is still very active.


He composed music for different games (not only Minecraft), especially at the time in 2008, on an independent game called "Circle" which finally never saw the light of day, but also and above all composed his own independent music outside Video games ! You can listen to his work on his website and also on his YouTube channel (all the links are a little below).


And in these many albums, we find everything: Orchestral music, background music, cinematic style soundtracks, electronics, house, "Drum'nBass", etc.


Its variety is not to be missed.
