Daniel Patrick Cohen
Daniel is a British composer based in Romania. After graduating from the Royal Academy of Music in 2010, he was commissioned to score Alfred Hitchcock’s first silent feature film as part of the BFI’s Rescue the Hitchcock 9 project, with funding from PRS. In 2015, Daniel released The Passenger, an album inspired by a David Lynch quote about Barry Adamson's Oedipus Schmoedipus being "like hearing Hitch’s films in your head."
More recently Daniel was commissioned to write Reciprocity, a song cycle based on poems by Canadian poet Darya Farha, which was performed in London and in Canada at the Ottawa-based music festival Chamberfest. He has given talks on his approach to film music in England, Ukraine, Kazakhstan and Romania, and continues to compose soundtracks for arthouse film. Daniel is also currently working on a second album, due for release in 2021, and intends to produce more albums than there are Stanley Kubrick films.
