ABOUT — DANIEL SCHUBARTHDan Schubarth performing on guitar at the Circle Bar in New Orleans

 

Welcome to my website.

There are several different directions that I follow with my art.  Common themes are depth psychology, the nature of the universe, self-exploration, artistic/genre exploration, creating personal systems of form/composition, multiple meanings, juxtaposition of disparate elements to create new meanings, juxtaposition of disparate elements to create humor.  With my music I’m mostly trying to create sounds that I want to hear, but am also very interested in using music in some of the aforementioned ways as well.  Sometimes that involves working with established forms, other times it requires taking chances and looking for new ways to organize sound into a cohesive whole.  My photography is about sharing my environment as I see it and as I come across it;  I’m not too interested in staging shots for the most part.

I received my B.A. degree in art from California State University, Long Beach and completed the B.A. program in music composition at the University of New Orleans with a 4.0 gpa.  I’ve performed in numerous musical groups and ensembles over the years, and have occasionally shown my art in various venues.

Art, music, and photographs will be posted as regularly to this site as I can manage it.  Thanks for visiting.

 

Also, I like to hang out in places like these when I can:
