Even though he studied many years in electro-acoustic composition, Daniel Leduc quickly sidetracked his music career for more profitable day jobs. His output has been very limited, both in terms of quantity and quality. He was not able to push beyond the status of a promising student.
Born in Montreal, 1965, Leduc got his master's and doctorate degrees in electro-acoustic composition from the Universite de Montreal in 1991 and 1998. In the early '90s he contributed to the telephone-related CD project Rappel, curated by the Quebec collective Avatar, and got involved in the Canadian Electroacoustic Community, assuming its presidency from 1992 to 1994. But his works did not have the strength of Gilles Gobeil, Yves Daoust, or even Ned Bouhalassa and he focused his career on communications and computer science, earning a living as a newspaper and radio columnist on the Internet and recording voices for radio and television. He also works as a computer technician.
Still creating, he finished his first CD, Le Voyage d'Hiver, in 1999. It was released by the prestigious label Empreintes DIGITALes, but went by unnoticed.
