Composer | Sound Designer | Re-recording Mixer | Website Designer | Producer
As a music producer, Brent Daniels (also professionally known as “Free”) is an accomplished multi-instrumentalist, recording engineer, sound designer and singer. He began classical piano studies at age 10. A love affair with electronic music production and the recording arts soon blossomed and led to his first professional performances of his own work at age 14. As the the last signing to the venerable Chicago-based Wax Trax!, Brent recorded and released the self-produced and critically-acclaimed electronic LP Searching For The End under the name Hednoize with co-founder and fellow producer Daniel Lenz. Aside from Hednoize’s focus on innovative sound design and solid song craftsmanship, the cinematic sonic undertones of the release foreshadowed Brent’s eventual, parallel role as a film composer and post production sound designer.
As a remixer and programmer, Brent has worked with Marcella Levy (Marcella Detroit, Shakespeare’s Sister, Eric Clapton), Rick Knowles and Billy Steinberg (Madonna, Stevie Nicks), and Thomas Dolby (Headspace/Beatnik). As a recording artist, Brent’s music has been used in film (Mortal Kombat: Annihilation, Charlie’s Angels, Scary Movie 2, Homegrown, Gossip, The Skulls, Behind Enemy Lines, The Lake House, The Love Guru), television (“Le Femme Nikita,” “Mad Men,” “Burn Notice,” “The Real World,” and trailers (“Blade Runner [re-release]),” Terminator: Salvation,” “Flight Of The Phoenix”) .
A passionate advocate for general education, liberal arts and technology studies, since 1993 Brent has concurrently performed in over 1000 primary/secondary schools and universities across the continental United States, entertaining and teaching well over 750,000 students and faculty about electronic music production and the importance of education.
