Born in the rural Canadian countryside, Daniel Gardner spent his formative years in relative isolation, serenaded by the supernatural sounds of the environment in which he inhabited. Not content with the offerings of his schooling, he spent wintery nights tuned into the university radio stations, recording weird and wonderful electronic music onto cassette tape and studying it’s structural intricacy. It wasn’t long before he began sampling his habitat and creating sonic landscapes of his own, as surreal and serene as his surroundings.
