Daniel Soley is a professional composer, sound artist and performer, originally from Alfrick Pound near  Malvern. Daniel was a member of various Worcestershire Youth Music ensembles, including the Worcestershire Youth Orchestra and  Worcestershire Youth Brass Band, before he moved to Cardiff in 2013 to study Composition and Creative Music Technology at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama. 

During his time there, Daniel attained opportunities to write for the Band of the Welsh Guards, Richard Burton Theatre Company, and BBC National Orchestra of Wales. Keen to also keep playing, he performed with the college’s symphony orchestra on violin, student jazz bands on trombone, and sang with the BBC Proms Youth Choir under the baton of Sir Simon Rattle.

After graduating and beginning his career as a self-employed creative musician, Daniel’s output has led to work in the UK and abroad, producing new experiences in music and sound for theatre, film, animation, public attractions, galleries, experimental arts events, educational initiatives, and of course, the concert hall. Having now penned compositions for the likes of the RSNO and members of the Paraorchestra, Daniel is proud to be currently developing his craft with Britten Sinfonia as one of their Magnum Opus composers. Together, they’ll be presenting his first concerto at a showcase concert in London next year.
