Having carved a reputation for himself as an innovative composer, performer, violinist, and band leader, Haitian-American artist Daniel Bernard Roumain melds his classical music roots with his own cultural references and vibrant musical imagination.

His works range from orchestral scores and chamber pieces to music for film, theater, modern dance, and electronica. In 2007, DBR premiered One Loss Plus, the first of three works commissioned by the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) for its Next Wave Festival. Showcasing his wide-ranging eclecticism, One Loss Plus is Romain’s evening-length, multimedia work for electric/acoustic violin, prepared/amplified piano, electronics, and video. His latest orchestral work and second BAM commission Darwin’s Meditation for The People of Lincoln is a musical setting of a pocket play by Daniel Beaty; following its New York premiere in October 2008, the show moves to the University of Connecticut as a special celebratory concert on February 12, 2009, the icons’ shared bicentennial anniversary of their birth.
