Daniel Muñoz Alférez was born 16 February 1983 in Querétaro Mexico. Initialized in piano by his father and a little later by his brother, Daniel always seemed to refuse going to the conservatory or any other institutionalized musical education. It was not until 1998 when he accepted violin lessons with a Cuban teacher. Besides this educator he has not had any other formal musical instruction. Self-teaching remains his foremost method of musical learning, having reached substantial levels in instruments such as piano (his primary), electric bass, saxophone, and others.

Daniel began composing for piano since his very early years, but was until the age of 17 when he started getting some serious results. His musical works cover a wide diversity of styles from Electronic Dance/Pop, Trance, Experimental, to post-classical, contemporary music in orchestra and piano, also Religious music and Latin styles.

Daniel began singing and playing in local churches at a very young age, and has played the organ in the Cathedral of Querétaro for many years. Music is not Daniels sole field, contrasting his role as a pianist in restaurants, he also works in the computer repairing business, being able to fix software or hardware troubles in PC's and laptops, assembling new equipment and working in analog-digital audio/video conversions. Identified more as a computer technician rather than composer, Daniel continues writing his legacy on the present.
