Daniel (A.K.A Ivan Decoud) Is a trombonist and sound artist from Buenos Aires, Argentina. Focusing on the intersections of improvised music, composition, physical processes of instruments, noise, movement and electronics, Daniel explores the diversity of sound and technique in diverse contexts.  With a passion for media, nature, and technology, Daniel has created a large body of experimental work that evokes both human instinct and industrial innovation. Daniel continues to research ways in which he can deconstruct instrumental functions to find an individual identity as a soloist, collaborator, and sideman. 

Beginning his musical training in Jazz at the Conservatory Superior Manuel de Falla, Daniel has worked with Pablo Fenoglio (Soloist of the Teatro Colón), George Lewis, Peter Evans, Ingrid Laubrock, Tyshawn Sorey, Fay Victor, Okkyung Lee, Rodrigo Dominguez, Marc Ducret and Tony Malaby, among others.

Over the past four years, Daniel has participated in ensembles and residencies such as The Meeting point, Tim Berne Ensemble, Trombonanza, the Jazz and Creative Music and Ensemble Evolution Residencies at the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity in Canada.

Daniel is currently a member of the groups: Los Tenistas, Maple, Cabeza Termo, Bollywood, Totosko, Duo, 8, Camila Nebbia (Aura) and Ursus. After teaching at the Municipal Musical Training Project in Escobar, Buenos Aires, Daniel has continued to teach and collaborate with artists in all areas and age ranges in the US and abroad.
