Born and raised in Paris and currently residing in Los Angeles,  Daniel Wohl's music blends electronics with acoustic instrumentation to often "surprising and provocative effect" (NPR). HIs multifaceted output ranges from intimate music for soloists to immersive electronic pieces, music for film and television, chamber ensembles, and works for large orchestra. He has received critical praise as one of his generation’s "imaginative, skillful creators" (New York Times)  making music that is "beautiful...original" (Pitchfork). 

Performances of his concert music have been held at the Broad Museum, MASS MoCA, the Hollywood Bowl, Carnegie Hall, The Barbican,  Sadler's Wells, the Holland Festival and MoMA PS1, performed by ensembles such as the San Francisco Symphony (Soundbox series), the Chicago Symphony Orchestra (MusicNOW series), the Los Angeles Philharmonic, The London Contemporary Orchestra, New York Youth Symphony, the Bang on a Can All-Stars,  So Percussion, and the Calder Quartet among others.

His interest in composing for film and television has led him to work with directors such as Luca Guadagnino, Patty Jenkins, Robert  Zemeckis, and Morgan Neville.

His latest album Etat was recently released on Nonesuch and New Amsterdam Records. Upcoming projects include new concert works with the Cincinnati Symphony and Arooj Aftab, a new ensemble piece for chamber group Alarm Will Sound, as well as a score to Search Party’s (HBO) 5th Season.

A graduate of the Yale School of Music, Daniel studied primarily with composer David Lang.
