D. Nelson
Daniel Nelson (01/05/1965), a Swedish composer. He was born in Bethesda, Maryland, United States of America. His family moved to Sweden in 1970. His first studies in composition were with Lars-Erik Rosell prior to returning to the United States in 1985. There, he studied composition with Jean Eichelberger-Ivey at the Peabody Conservatory. Having received his Bachelor of Music degree, he went on to study for a Master of Arts with Ralph Shapey at University of Chicago. Since 1992, he has been working in Sweden as a composer. Nelson's music is pulse-oriented. It has also been described as minimalistic in character (more post-minimalistic, actually, not to be confused with early minimalism), and as containing a slightly neo-Romantic vein as well.
