Daniel Beck is an Associate Lecturer in Music Technology at the School of Computing and Digital Media.
Daniel Beck is a London Met alumni and current Techne funded PhD student on the Creative Research into Sound Arts Practice unit at the University of the Arts London. As well as a practicing sound artist and researcher, Daniel has taken on a number of roles in the cinema and film industries, working on a wide variety of projects ranging from music videos, feature documentaries, ad campaigns and charity videos through his role as Film Producer at Friends of the Earth.
Daniel’s work brings together sculpture, installation, live performance and experimental film through a sound focussed art practice that aims to challenge people to consider their connection to the environment, their communities and their understanding of the world around them. Daniel’s current research aims to discover how the interplay of sound and naturally occurring environmental effects such as temperature, humidity and radioactivity can influence our understanding of "place" within our natural environment and how focussing on the qualities of this exchange, through an interdisciplinary sound art practice, can reveal positive associations that reconnect us with the environments that we inhabit. Daniel’s work utilises audiovisual tools such as Max/MSP, Jitter, PureData and After Effects and recent exhibitions include a solo show at Unripe Gallery, London and a commission of sound sculptures for the British Museum. He is also currently a Trustee at the UK Green Film Festival, an annual nationwide environmental film festival, where he held the position of Festival Director from 2013-2020.
Daniel is currently an Associate Lecturer in Music Technology on the Music Technology and Production BSc at London Met.
