Daniel Reyes Llinás, a Colombian composer, guitarist, and producer, derives inspiration from rhythmic and melodic angularity. He weaves atonal architectures with vibrant lyricism into his music. As a leader, Daniel has released two albums: "Molino," a captivating collage of world and new music, and "En Remolinos," a bold exploration that blurs the boundaries between improvisation and composition. His contributions can be heard on Parias Ensemble's experimental "St. Mark's sessions" and on the eclectic collaborative EP "re:SET vol:1”. Daniel has scored films, theater productions, and dance choreographies. Most recently, his solo guitar debut, "Códices," comprising a series of modern guitar études and improvisations co-produced by Trey Gunn, is scheduled for release on 7DMedia on November 3rd, 2023.
