Some of the best music out there is informed by a simple fact of life: you live and learn. Just ask Jerry Danielsen. Or better yet, listen to his music. It’s clear that Jerry writes from a voice of living life, be it a film or theatre score, or a song. He's a composer, performer, producer, filmmaker, interdisciplinary artist, poet and educator.
has extensive experience composing music for film and television, theatre, contemporary classical works, jazz, commercial, experimental, as well as music for electronic instruments and traditional orchestras. “CineVerses” is Jerry’s most recent collection of music and short films – using poems from his recent book – “Background Noise,” as the script. All the music is recorded and produced at his recording studio in Santa Clarita: Busy Signal Studios.
Jerry is also the father of Sean Danielsen – front man for Gold Record artists Smile Empty Soul. From an early age, Jerry has been a true innovator. “ I used to lock myself in my room and listen to music, when my friends wanted to hang out. Later I would play guitar in my car for my lunch break, instead of eating. As soon as I got involved in music, I knew this was what I wanted to do.” He started out studying guitar, piano, and bass intensely; led and performed with several rock, jazz, other groups. Continuing on, Jerry attended recording school (Sound Master Audio-Video Institute) and began recording his own music. At this time, he incorporated much of his music into multimedia shows featuring his own poetry (as a founding editor of Vol. No. Poetry Magazine and Los Angeles Poets’ Press). These opportunities have exposed Jerry’s music to thousands of people.
