Daniel Kelly

Daniel began his exploration into music production as a student of Real Sound. Before this, he had been DJing in nightclubs around Dublin and continued doing this for several years, playing in venues such as Hangar, 39/40, and The Button Factory. 

Daniel then relocated to Berlin, to study for a degree in electronic music production and live performance from the Catalyst Institute for Creative Arts and Technology. It was here that Daniel began to take an interest in teaching, and he knew it was something he wanted to pursue after his graduation.

While studying, Daniel gained knowledge of many aspects of music production, including, audio processing, synthesis, and mastering. He views music production and the teaching of it as never being one strategy that fits all tasks. Daniel will aim to guide his students through the process of making music, rather than give them a step-by-step guide. 

Daniel’s creative experience focused on the production of techno, but he has a keen interest in heavy metal and punk music, and how the genres can be combined. 

Daniel takes a strong interest in broader creative culture, is an employee at BIMM Dublin, and will be studying for a postgraduate certificate in creative and cultural entrepreneurship in the coming months, at Trinity College Dublin.
