Dan Pound composes and produces ambient electronic, new age, world/shamanic, space-music soundscapes.
Dan was classically trained on piano, guitar and double bass at an early age and started writing songs soon after. He went on to be in the local honor orchestra and was soon writing pieces for the entire ensemble. Besides performing and composing, Dan has earned degrees in recording engineering and electronic music technology, and has received credits as 1st engineer and mixer for an indie jazz release, “Crusin’ Some Grooves” by the Steve Wolfe Quartet.
Over several years, Dan has pieced together a home studio where he does most of his work now recording and producing his music independently. He specializes in music for film and multi-media, as well as recording and producing his own albums on his newly developed label, Pound Sounds.
Several of Dan’s songs have received airplay on many ambient radio programs, including the widely syndicated NPR FM program, Hearts Of Space, as well as many others.
In September of 2009, Dan was named Artist of the month on the on-line web radio site, Stillstream.com, which is heard around the globe.
Many of Dan’s CD releases have been ranked in several on-air programs’ monthly and yearly top release lists. Programs like Stars End, Mystic Music, Inner Visions, Galactic Travels, Ultima- Thule, Secret Music, Morning Fog and many others.
