Hi, I’m Daniel, I create music under the name A Path Untold. I've founded this site and educational platform to strive toward a unique offering of services, insight and knowledge for electronic music folk of all persuasions. This is a platform geared toward not just the technicals of composition and production - but also what drives those processes: the mental, emotional and philosophical aspects that inform the creative mindset behind the music, from my perspective, and perhaps some guests from time to time.
For the last 22 years, I’ve dedicated my life and full creative energy to this artform, and have had countless incredible adventures, profound discoveries and exhilirating experiences that've been shaped by it. Throughout my own evolution as an artist, including trials and tribulations, struggles and triumphs, I've felt compelled to share what I’ve discovered, and continue to discover along the way.
I truly believe that electronic music, as an artform, is a limitless sonic playground where the realms of sound and imagination converge and anything is possible - if you can dream it up and bring it into form. Throughout it's constantly evolving and mutating history, it has spawned countless genres, cultures and styles that have touched upon many facets of human life and expression - and we’ve still really only begun to scratch the surface. The capacity it provides for storytelling, personal and collective expression, emotional transmutation, consciousness exploration and self-therapy is truly transcendent, and out of all the artforms that are possible, its certainly one of the most exciting and powerfully relevant of our age. The ability to create any sound one can imagine, tap into a sense of limitlessness, and communicate potent, human emotional experiences is unto itself a magical feat. I perpetually look forward to hearing the sounds and expressions of the ever-renewing wave of creators who utilize this medium to its fullest potential.
These are some of the highest purposes that music can provide to us. Music informs the way we perceive the world around us, the way we react to it, and contribute to it. If you want to know what a culture is about, listen to it's music: it’s a dialogue and exploration of individual and collective consciousness and it's values, concepts and emotions. But, perhaps most importantly, music creation is also just incredibly FUN, and provides some very much-needed escapism from every day life.
I've created this site to perpetuate ideas that I find to be insipiring and relevant, do my best to contribute to the conversation around the artform, and assist in the creative success of developing artists by helping them translate their imaginations into a tangible reality. I’ve done my best to infuse everything on this site with my own hard-won, intuitive and experiential knowledge that I've found to be useful in my own path. I truly hope you find some value while you're here.
