Danielle Dahl (b. 1989) is a Norwegian composer, performer and improviser currently situated in Copenhagen, Denmark. Her work is often extreme in one sense or another: high pitched sounds, exploration of psychosocial elements like awkwardness or focus fatigue or the exploration of her own fragility on stage. Her work has been described by Hans Joachim Rodelius as a shamanistic ritual, or as an artistic boxing match with the self. As a saxophonist and improviser she has toured in Europe and Japan, played at festivals like Click Festival (DK), Musikkprotokoll (AUT) and Insomnia (NO), and has worked with, among others: Daniel Lercher, Mattin, Jim Denley, Paul Lovens and Jerome Cooper. As a composer and performer her music has been featured at Nordic Music Days (ISL), Femme Brutal Festival (NO) and Das Kleine Symposium (AUT)
