Saxophonist and composer Daniel Rotem, designed his approach to Wave Nature like the sun diagrams he grew up studying. Almost rhizomatic in nature, one idea spurring another and each subsequent link existing in service to the root and a world of its own, the structure of Wave Nature is both tethered and free-floating. “I view music as these different lines, and from listening you can come up with universes of thoughts, all these connections and associations. From one idea stem all these different things.” Wave Nature is, at its core, an album of ideas sewn together, each note signaling and gesturing to something grander. “Seeing something grow in front of you is breathtaking,” Rotem explains. “There is nothing like a small sound and seeing–hearing–it become part of something bigger.”

Growing up by the Mediterranean Sea, saxophonist and composer Daniel Rotem fell in love with the freedom and potential for expression he found in music and started to play saxophone as a teenager.  He is a graduate of Berklee College of Music and the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz (now the Herbie Hancock Institute) and had the privilege to perform and record with artists such as Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Billy Childs, Stevie Wonder, Terri Lyne Carrington, Luciana Souza, Vince Mendoza, Jeff Parker, Larry Goldings, Anthony Wilson, Alain Mallet, Miguel Atwood-Ferguson, Anat Cohen, Vardan Ovsepian, and many more. He is a commissioned and award-winning composer and songwriter, and has lent his saxophone voice to many scores and recordings, including his own 5 albums and original score for the film 'Mentally Al'.
