Danny Fluck /  Los Angeles Music Technologist, Drummer, Synthesist

Danny Fluck is a Music Technologist, Producer and Drummer living in Los Angeles.

He creates his solo music in a lab, using a drum kit, a sampler, and his trusty moog synthesizer . When on stage, the configuration consists of improvised sampling, and sometimes, humans, for added effect.

Danny plays synthesizer in Mini Bear, currently gigging throughout Los Angeles. He has also worked with The Devil and a Penny, Dirty Dishes (drums & percussion), Colin Green (live visuals), Mumble News and Hotel Beatz (drums).

In addition to playing in local outfits, Danny designs and implements solutions for live performance, integrating human factors and technologies such as MIDI to control audio and video on stage. He has toured with Childish Gambino throughout the US and Canada, headlining sold-out venues such as The Hollywood Palladium, Central Park Summerstage, as well as the Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, and Sasquatch festivals, and has shared the stage with the likes of Danny Brown, Schoolboy Q, Das Racist, Chance the Rapper, and Toro y Moi.

When not on stage, Danny produces educational content in the scope of Music Production, Composition, and Synthesis/Sound Design.

He is available for consultation and support in the realm of Live Electronic Performance, Sampling, Drum/Synthesizer Programming, Mixing, and Live Visuals.
