Dan Somers spent several years as a senior intelligence analyst for the US Government. In 2007 he left that position to make a full-time pursuit out of his true passion; music. He composed his first song when he was 12 years old, started a band when he was 16, and has been working with all facets of music ever since. He has written thousands of songs, started several bands, and worked as a live sound engineer, radio DJ, musician, and record label executive. Today, Dan is a partner and recording engineer at a commercial recording studio (audioconfusion in Mesa, AZ) where he has recorded hundreds of albums, and is also an independent music producer, writer, and performer (singer, pianist, guitarist, bassist, electronic programmer, and synthesizer player). He has written, arranged, performed, recorded, and mixed well over 100 unique pieces for Quantum Glide, each synchronized to the vocals and specifically designed to "set the mood" for a given visualization, and plans to double that as the project continues to grow.
