"As an electro-acoustic composer, Dan Lander never achieved a high status, but his activities as a radio artist, sound art speaker, and promoter make him an important figure in Canadian musique concrète.

Born in 1953 in Oshawa, Ontario, Lander studied performance, video, and sound in Halifax (Nova Scotia), but did not pursue his eduction after his college diploma, preferring to work outside of the musique concrète institution. He set up a home studio where he developed pieces using mostly speech-based material, while earning a living as an industrial laborer. Health problems gave him time to concentrate on his music career. From 1987 to 1991 he produced the radio art program Probleme With Language at CKLN, Toronto. He also edited two anthologies of articles on sound art: Sound by Artists (1990) and Radio Rethink: Art, Sound and Transmission (1994). Apart from a few short pieces on compilation albums like Electro-Clips and DisContact!, his only major release is the 1995 CD Zoo (on Empreintes DIGITALes), a witty and disturbing album illustrating his very personal approach to electro-acoustics.

After a few years at the Ontario Arts Council, Lander was appointed Media Arts Officer in 1998."-Fran¨ois Couture
