Nina Danon

Biography

Nina is a Franco-Italian composer, pianist and audio-visual artist.

She regards music as something that can be experienced through all senses, and collaborates with artists from all disciplines to establish new connections between their creative processes and redefine the relation between music and other forms of art.

Fascinated from an early age by multidisciplinary storytelling, Nina graduated in classical piano from the Conservatorio Santa Cecilia of Rome while studying scriptwriting and directing at the Sentieri Selvaggi Film School. She later moved to Berlin to work for film composer and artist Henning Lohner from Hans Zimmer’s Remote Control Productions, arranging and recording music for films and television.

Since 2012, Nina lives and works in London, where she completed a Master of Music in Sonic Arts at Goldsmiths College with a research focus on how the perception of motion in sounds and paintings can transmit emotions.

In 2014, she produced and composed her first theatre play in collaboration with Jacques Lecoq School graduate Justine Arden, which premiered at the Camden Fringe Festival.

Her work, commissioned by The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, the United Nations University, the Zeni Winery and Wine Museum and the Fondazione Museo Asia amongst others, has been presented and performed in London, Berlin, Rome, Turin, Beijing and New York, in venues such as The MAO Museum of Oriental Art, The Babylon Mitte, The Fuller Building, The Place Theatre, Camden People’s Theatre, The Proud Archivist, Blackheath Conservatoire and St Ethelburga’s Centre for Reconciliation and Peace.
