My name is Steven Michael Daniels. I am a musician, producer, recordist, programmer, composer, arranger, performer, digital artist etc. Before my fifth birthday I was diagnosed with Chalestatoma, a rare disease of unnecessary tissue growth that ate away some of my middle/inner ear. The first surgery was for completely different investigative intentions, only to find that some of my ear bones had already been destroyed in the left side of my head. My parents eventually found the Silverstein Institute where my hearing was repaired, and this tissue was removed from my skull. It has taken a total of seven surgeries to fix my my ear, but thanks to the help of Dr. Seth Rosenberg and his colleagues at the Silverstein Institute, I continue to actively persevere in my music production with hearing in my left ear. Throughout the length of shy life, I grew up in a Christian home surrounded by music — something that never ceases to spark my curiosity for life. Years of intensive instrumental focus has led me into developed realms of: self, thought, and song. Having performed in drum corps and various drumlines, a great respect is ministered for the obvious hours (of sweat and tears) that shine through in live music. A percussionist at heart, I have spent much of my time and thought on exercising various aspects of rhythm — for example: The emotion that is captured through tonality and the specific pitch-change-increments can be very apparent even to the uneducated ear. That is why rhythm fascinated me so much… to be able to create the same power of music, simply by changing the amount of time that passes in between the occurance of two or more sound sources?!?!?……… Brilliant.
