Daniel Feuerriegel is a creator of works that react to memory and experience. Inspired by his research into cognitive psychology and neuroscience, he constructs dense noise flows that cooperate with a listener’s thoughts to create new sounds in the mind.
Raised in a small town between the desert and the sea, he has always been struck by the sounds that create the feel of a place, especially in cities. On an exchange to Kumamoto, Japan he started to record the sounds that were important to his life in this new culture. These sounds were then weaved into compositions to build sound forms that change depending on who is listening.
Daniel is currently an assistant in a cognitive neuroscience laboratory and uses cognitive concepts to guide his personal research into sound. He is also developing devices to develop new sensory abilities.

FNR Releases: Ochiba (compilation), The Sea was Screaming
The Sea was Screaming is a work of cognition-reflective sound that interacts with the listener’s thoughts and experiences. New perceptions are created in the mind as sound converses with memory. Field recordings of people and nature are slowed to explore the micro rhythms and fluctuations that punctuate, scatter and solidify time in our experience. Recordings of electromagnetic radiation and underwater spaces explore hidden senses outside of our awareness. The music is also a window to outside environments. Sutures left in the sounds leave an entry for the sonic and other senses outside the speakers to participate. It is a work that acts as a perceptual counsellor to explore the inside and outside of a mind.
