But as avant-garde saxophonist Schnee will demonstrate, thinking itself is music.Daniel Schnee is both an abstract artist and avant-garde saxophonist whose work is regularly exhibited and performed internationally. He is also one of the few musicians worldwide who regularly performs traditional Arab and Persian music on the saxophone. He is the artistic director and founder of the Kyoto International Improvisation Ensemble, and is considered a leading figure among the current generation of graphic score composers worldwide (Theresa Sauer, Notations 21). He is presently completing his Ph.D. in Ethnomusicology, focusing on the relationship between Zen Buddhism and non-idiomatic improvisation, and is a Graduate Associate of the York Center for Asian Research.About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event.
