"fighting dan" was a project I started around 1995-96. I grew up making noise with various things around my room and recording those things. I went through a couple of cheap casio keyboards when I was younger then got my first Roland Jupider 6 in 94'. In 95' I bought a Mirage Sampler for about $40 and started sequencing noises and trying to create my own sounds. I started recording stuff with in under the name "fighting dan" (short for fighting dantalian). The last recording I did under fighting dan was "Numbers" which was more like the music I recorded in my room before I had any equipment at all. The last full lengh cd was "The reflection" which I finished up in 2004. I am currently working on some new stuff under the name "Empath and Malicey". Look for it on soundclick.
