Daniel Davidsen

Born and raised in Copenhagen and educated as a sound engineer in Denmark and the U.S. During my studies and work I have always been drawn to interacting with musicians during recording sessions and to build trusting relationships. I combine the role of engineer and producer and keep a constant focus on the artistic and sonic result.

My work experience from Denmark, Sweden and the U.S. comprises a range of musical styles and I have particular experience in solo piano and symphony orchestra recordings. Portable equipment from Merging Technologies has enabled me to record symphony orchestras in Denmark and Sweden: Copenhagen Philharmonic Orchestra, Danish National Chamber Orchestra, Odense Symphony Orchestra and Malmö Symphony Orchestra. My work is represented on Danish, Swedish and American record labels. Read more at the discography-page.

My formal education started with a bachelor’s degree in musicology from the University of Copenhagen. I then obtained both a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in Tonmeister Studies from The Royal Danish Academy of Music.

Awards and honours include a gold award in the AES student recording competition. I was the first tonmeister ever to receive the Léonie Sonning Talent Prize in 2017 and the first tonmeister ever to receive the two-year Young Elite Career Grant from the Danish Art Foundation in 2018.
