A native of New Haven, CT, double bassist and composer Daniel Barbiero has been active in improvised and experimental music and dance in the Baltimore-Washington area for several years as a performer, composer and ensemble leader. His music reflects his background in minimal, modal and non-genre specific improvisation, and interest in verbal, graphic and other non-standard methods of scoring for small ensembles. His creative activities have included leading and composing for the ensembles Shape Memory Alloy, Third Object Orchestra, and The Subtle Body Transmission Orchestra; he has released work under his own name and with Ictus Records percussionist Andrea Centazzo, Blue Note recording artist Greg Osby, and electronic sound artist Steve Hilmy. Ongoing collaborations include work with the trio Colla Parte (with saxophonist Perry Conticchio and percussionist Rich O’Meara) and the Nancy Havlik Dance Performance Group, for which he is Music Director.
