About Daniel Oppenheim Daniel Oppenheim spent his life exploring intersections between music, art, and science. He built his first darkroom as a teenager in his hometown of Jerusalem, Israel, to support his early work as a professional photographer. He then became a composer of vocal, instrumental, and computer music. His works have been performed worldwide, and twice represented Israel in the prestigious World Music Days. While studying for his doctorate degree at Stanford University he pioneered the first system for interactive music composition and performance (a "Photoshop" for composition). He was then invited by IBM Research to co-create its Computer Music Center, and for over two decades innovated in fields such as computer science, cloud, and cognitive computing. As scientist he is currently helping a university in Israel create a research center that will push the boundaries of creative expression by exploring how our mind generates the musical experience. As artist and photographer he is exploring the experience that naturally occurs as humans interact intimately. Image: Tal M. Oppenheim, (C) 2012.
