BIO

Throughout his career Davel pursued unique opportunities for expression, seeking out electronic resources and finding synthesizer pioneer Don Buchla at work on unique controllers. This led to 20 years of technical work as well as performance with Don Buchla. With Davel's intimate knowledge of electronic music instruments as a builder, he has mined their potential with composition and improvisation.
He has made frequent appearances as a solo electronic percussionist at the San Jose Tech Museum of Innovation, as well as the Other Minds Film Festival and the ROOM and SIMM series in San Francisco. His musical approach to the medium has drawn accolades. The Wall Street Journal commented on Davel's appearance at a Lincoln Center event: "percussionist Joel Davel blew everyone away with his virtuosic improvisation on the Marimba Lumina, an electronic invention that emulates and extends the vocabulary of conventional mallet instruments, and the [Buchla] Lightning, played by waving wireless wands in space."
...
Don Buchla has been creating unusual electronic music instruments since the early 1960's.
...
The work done with Don Buchla, Daniel Schmidt and Paul Dresher is in this same spirit.
