Daniel Schvetz was born in Buenos Aires (Argentina) in 1955. His journey in the universe of sound as a performer and a composer started from his early relationship with the piano. He studied at the López Bouchardo National Conservatory and at the Buenos Aires Catholic University. He worked with famous masters such as Roberto Brando and Moisés Makaroff (piano), Guillermo Graetzer (counterpoint and composition) and Femina Cassanova (harmony). He participated in the Latin-American course of contemporary music and in the electroacoustics courses at the Ricardo Rojas University. Daniel Schvetz travelled to all countries of South America, especially to the interior of Argentina, Bolivia and Peru, with the purpose of studying the characteristics of local cultures, interpreting his own repertoire and that of Argentinean and Latin-American composers. He founded the groups El Borde (1989) and Ophris (1991). He is presently a teacher at the Music School of Lisbon's National Conservatory, Portugal.
