Daniel Reza Sabzghabaei (دانیال رضا سبزقبایی) (ASCAP) is a creator whose work aims to emphasize the malleability of time and how we experience it, not just in the concert hall but in everyday life as well. His music has been performed and commissioned by organizations including: Hong Kong’s Intimacy of Creativity Festival, the International Contemporary Ensemble, Beth Morrison Projects, the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity, the New York Festival of Song, Israeli Chamber Project, [Switch~ Ensemble], Pro Coro Canada, TAK Ensemble, Contemporaneous, Utah’s Moab Music Festival, Minnesota’s VocalEssence, Dallas’ Voices of Change, Seattle’s The Esoterics, White Snake Projects, the Busan Choral Festival, Korea’s Ansan City Choir, Romania’s ICon Arts Festival, Festivalul Internațional Craiova Muzicală, and Unheard-of//Ensemble to name a few. As a vocalist, Daniel is keen on exploring the voice as a means of empathy, vulnerability, and experimentation, embracing a wide palette of timbres, sounds, and colors. As of late, Daniel has been studying and taking increasing inspiration from Persian melodic and rhythmic systems, folk music, art, and poetry. Daniel holds degrees from the University of North Texas and the Peabody Conservatory. He is currently a doctoral candidate at Cornell University. https://danielsabzghabaei.com/
