Dan Lander

As an electro-acoustic composer, Dan Lander never achieved a high status, but his activities as a radio artist, sound art speaker, and promoter make him an important figure in Canadian musique concrète. Lander studied performance, video, and sound in Halifax (Nova Scotia), but did not pursue his eduction after his college diploma, preferring to work outside of the musique concrète institution. From 1987 to 1991 he produced the radio art program Probleme With Language at CKLN, Toronto. He also edited two anthologies of articles on sound art: Sound by Artists (1990) and Radio Rethink: Art, Sound and Transmission (1994). - Excerpted from allmusic.com.
