Rooted in mysticism, magick, and mythology, Daniel Rosenboom's ongoing "book" series seeks to explore the more spiritually nebulous aspects of human nature. Using graphic scores and guided improvisation, these projects draw together some of the creative music world's most distinctive voices to intone esoteric incantations inspired by and dedicated to visions from "the other side." Psychedelic, raw, and highly imaginative, this music is for seekers and dreamers, and those who seek to go beyond.
Blending the rhythmic counterpoint and morphing development of minimalism with the explosive freedom of creative improvisation, and the dynamic interplay of jazz with the timbral range of contemporary classical chamber music, Astral Transference & Seven Dreams are swirling, psychedelic and totally immersive sonic experiences.
WOOPS! is a pastiche graphic improvisational score created especially for Creative Underground Los Angeles's performance on the JazzPOP Series at the Armand Hammer Museum in Los Angeles. The music is comprised of excerpts from pieces by Cathlene Pineda, Eric KM Clark, Jose Gurria-Cardenas, and Eron Rauch, and inspired by a poem by John Skipp.
DR7: The Septet
The Daniel Rosenboom Septet is an acoustic jazz group dedicated to play the compositions of Daniel Rosenboom. Blending noir jazz and contemporary classical chamber music with hard driving rock grooves, this group recalls elements of Charles Mingus, Ornette Coleman, and The Bad Plus, with overtones of Stravinsky, Messaien, and Zappa lining the sound.
The Modern Brass Quintet
For decades the Modern Brass Quintet has established itself as one of Los Angeles's foremost proponents of brass chamber music. With a stalwart dedication to the performance of serious repertoire for brass quintet, the group has included some of Los Angeles's most venerated performing musicians. In its current iteration, the Modern Brass Quintet includes trumpeters Marissa Bennedict and Daniel Rosenboom, horn player Dylan Hart, trombonist Steven Suminski, and tubist Doug Tornquist.
Solo Trumpet Work
With an extensive background in classical and contemporary classical music, Daniel Rosenboom is committed to the performance and development of new, compelling works for solo trumpet. He has worked closely with many composers, especially on his debut solo record, Bloodier Mean Son (below) . He also is an accomplished soloist in classical styles - his recording of the J.S. Bach's Adagio BWV 974 (above) was featured in the 2011 film, Beginners. He has appeared as a soloist and collaborator all over the world and has performed with such notable groups as the Los Angeles Philharmonic New Music Group, Southwest Chamber Music, the Monday Evening Concerts players, and many more.
