Berwick Year 12 student Daniel Sandvik has been making the most of his time at home. Our talented music scholar is currently working on a 9-movement, 29-minute orchestral arrangement of music from the soundtrack of the anime/visual novel CLANNAD and CLANNAD: After Story.

Admitting that he usually goes a little stir-crazy when not working on some musical passion project, Daniel was inspired to undertake this particular work because as a long time fan of anime CLANNAD: After Story stands out to him thanks to its musical score, which manages to be simultaneously both heart-warming and heart-wrenching. 

Being self-taught in arrangement and composition, Daniel has had ongoing support from his teachers Dale Condon and James Hampton, who have continued to enthusiastically support the the project over Zoom.

Daniel hopes to one day have the arrangement performed by a symphony orchestra that he himself will conduct.
