Daniel Weintraub

Deep Listening: the Story of Pauline Oliveros has been Daniel’s primary focus since a conversation with Oliveros started them down this path. During the process, Daniel created documentary shorts on the work of Oliveros: Don’t Call Them Lady Composers, and Montage for lmprovisors which were shown in museums and festivals in the US, UK, Spain and Switzerland. Additionally, Daniel acted as video consultant on the exhibition of Pauline’s work at El Centro de Creacion Contemporanea de Andalucia in Cordoba, Spain. Daniel has written and directed several narrative short films that have featured at festivals around the world. Seasoned in film and television, Daniel has worked on commercials, music videos, TV shows, and feature films across a career spanning 25 years. Most recently, he edited the award-winning post-Katrina documentary feature Forced Change (2022). Daniel is passionate about youth arts education, both as an educator and as director of Forge Media, an apprentice-based production company offering film students professional experience working on videos for local organizations focused on supporting and building community. Daniel is also a musician, producer, and recording engineer, mixing sound for picture, and music recordings of artists including Lionel Loouke, The Felice Brothers, Karen Ann, and the record Molecular Affinity, a trio with Pauline Oliveros, Thollem McDonas, and Nels Cline.
