biography

Daniel Thomas Freeman is an artist working mainly in music and film.

His debut album "The Beauty Of Doubting Yourself" (Home Normal) led to scoring the award-winning, brutal and beautiful Film4 / BFI / STUDIOCANAL feature "Catch Me Daddy" with Matthew Watson and being included in Indiewire's 2015 list of '15 Composers To Watch' .

Daniel was a member of Rameses III, the South London ambient / experimental / drone / folk group who had countless releases over their ten years on labels such as Type and Important Records and who played live supporting such genre luminaries as Stars Of The Lid, Current 93, Murcof, Fursaxa, James Blackshaw, These New Puritans and Astral Social Club.

Other soundtrack work includes music for the short film "Suityman", the National Film Board of Canada / Alexi Hobbs' interactive short "The Last Hunt" which won a 2014 Webby Award and additional music and sound design for the performance theatre piece "The Lie Box".

His next album, "The Infinite and the Unknowable", was released on 22nd July 2016 accompanied by his debut collection of photography and poetry.
