Daniel Buess (dr) studied at the Musikhochschule Basel with Siegfried Schmid and with Isao Nakamura in Karlsruhe. Studies in traditional southindian percussion-music, specially the Mridangam from 1995 till 1998 and in Arabic percussion music during a three months residency in Cairo, Egypt from Nov. 2007 till Jan. 2008.
At his regular tours through Europe, Asia and Australia, he performed at the most highly recognised festivals for experimental music as well as at several underground-places, open spaces and independent venues.
In most of his own independent projects and performances which preferably happen at unusual places like car-workshops, Daniel makes an extensive use of his self-made percussion devices, built of different materials and electronics. Occasionally, particularly in Asia, he gives master classes on electronic coffee-cans. He has various Radio and CD productions to his credit.
