Danyal arranges strings for a variety of singers, songwriters and bands. His work has featured on Sam Lee's Mercury-nominated album Ground Of Its Own. In the studio, he is equally at home multi-tracking parts himself on the viola and violin, or writing for a larger group. In a live context, his extensive performing experience gives him a good knowledge of how to optimise an arrangement for a smaller group of players. Danyal also arranges for keyboards, wind, brass, and percussion.
My string arrangement for Alex Eckford's 'The Long Walk'. Recorded live at St.Jude's Hampstead by the Janus Ensemble (conducted by Tom Seligman, engineered by Adaq Khan). Video animation by Simon Russell.
"the sweeping orchestration is so lush that it’s like being lulled into a wonderful dream" - Mike Haydock, BBC Music
