Daniel was born on 29th of January 1963 in Johannesburg - South Africa. He spent his first years in Rome, grew up in France and has been living and working in London (UK) since 1985. During his keyboard studies at the Jazz Conservatory of Monaco and Nice University (France) he put together a series of experimental bands and wrote the music for several theatrical productions. This resulted in an early use of electronic instruments and an interest in visual performance, which is reflected in all his work.
In 1993 he founded the Sargasso label to promote contemporary experimental and avant-garde music. His long-term collaborators include choreographer Jane Turner, singer songwriter Orange, sound designer Mike Willox, guitarist Rob Palmer and jazz personality BB Davis. Biro is also president of the CAMAC Art Centre in France. His CDs have been critically acclaimed worldwide.
