Who I am
As a Visual Media Composer/Producer, I am a seasoned musical professional with over 10 years in the business and a proven track record in delivering results. My passion for music composition adds a unique dimension to the visual media with an aim to be artistically original.
I have an invaluable network of industry professionals and believe in using real musicians as much as possible. My collaborative approach, friendly disposition and musical maturity all add to my passion for perfection. I have strong technical expertise from academic training in music and IT as well as extensive on-the-job experience in New York, Moscow, Hong Kong, Belgium, Melbourne, Singapore and now in Italy.
My expertise includes media and filmscoring, creation of original classical music, orchestration and arranging. My core experience lies in development and implementation of original musical cues for documentaries, commercials, animation and short films, and management of budgets.

“Danny De Can’s music is thoughtful, modern yet extremely sensitive. His compositions express deep and sophisticated emotions – a unique character and warmth that can be easily distinguished from his contemporaries.”

“Ocean Vista films and Leeson Media International have worked with Danny De Can for the past eight years. For us, Danny has always brought more than just music to the table. His professional attitude is exemplary and brings with it the ease of mind when working on difficult projects or where client relationships are key. He is capable of tackling any project, large or small and will find a way around any problem quick smart. Danny works on budget and to schedule every time. His musical knowledge and feel for varied projects also means no time is wasted in misunderstood briefs or subjective views on musical arrangements. He understands the brief and, in our experience, has always strived to over deliver. We always welcome having Danny work with us on our projects and would recommend him to anyone considering the same.”
Craig Leeson, CEO/Founder Leeson Media, Hong Kong
“I have been working in the Hollywood film industry for over thirty years on dozens of ‘A’ list feature films. Just recently I completed my feature film ‘Bat Outta Hell’ as the writer, director & producer and we are now in prep for it’s sequel. I met with Danny De Can after the film and just had to congratulate him on his exceptional work in writing & composing the score for ‘Scams Incorporated’. Besides Danny being an extremely talented music composer, I found him to be a very delightful and driven person and I would not hesitate to work with him in the future.”
Danial Donai, Writer/Director/Producer
“Years ago when Danny was one of my students through Berklee College of Music, he paid a great deal of attention to detail and sensitivity – no surprise to me, being that he is also a very good violinist. However, over the years since he has grown to be an even better composer, orchestrator and arranger, constantly working on new material and refining his craft even more.”
Jerry Gates, Professor – Berklee College of Music/CWP Dept, Boston, MA
“Working with Danny is a wonderful experience. He is a highly gifted composer and orchestrator whom I was fortunate to work with on several projects. His professionalism, deep musical knowledge, versatility combined with great communication skills are all just a fraction of the many valuable skills Danny brings to the table. Nothing has ever been too much trouble for Danny and I have always received quick and helpful solutions to challenges I had posed him.”
Marie-Anne Fischer, Composer, London
