“As a creative mind, I’m always challenging myself to try new and interesting things. With music, there is an endless array of sounds, textures, tools and techniques that can be combined in many different ways. This is the joy that I find as a composer: every day is a new adventure for discovery.” ~ Daniel Sadowski
