“When I strip a lot of the material things away from me and have just a limited amount of tools and options, that’s when I feel the most creative.”
– Dani Markham
Osiris Podcasts releases the sixth episode of a new, multidimensional podcast series, Past, Present, Future, Live! featuring Dani Markham. A born beatmaker, Dani has channeled her lifelong passion for rhythm into musical stylings from across the world.
In 2014 Dani toured with the indie pop sensation tUnE-yArDs
, forging a unique musical bond with their leader Merrill Garbus. In 2016 Dani joined Childish Gambino, the Grammy-winning
stage name of superstar Donald Glover, to incorporate her sound into their eclectic rhythm section. Between world tours, Dani found time to compose an hour-long drum score for a live dance performance called “It’s Time“
, with choreographer Jenn Freeman. This unique concept and composition is just another step in Dani’s ongoing experiments with rhythm and sound.
Keeping with that experimental theme, after the interview you’ll hear Dani perform three new songs that she wrote during the COVID lockdown with violinist Sarah Neufeld
, best known as a member of Arcade Fire. You can see videos of these and all other Past, Present, Future, Live! performances on the Osiris Media YouTube Channel
You’ll find music from all the artists mentioned in this interview on our Past, Present, Future, Live! Spotify playlist
