Ryann Daisy Swimmer is an American composer, performer, and curator from Minneapolis, Minnesota, whose musical ethos focuses on the in-between, the blurred lines, and the insignificant.


As a composer, Swimmer brings their knowledge of theory-heavy composition and instinctual popular music together to create music that could be categorized as classically-influenced experimental music, “indie-classical”, or something else entirely.


As curator and co-founder of (minus) hall, they bring the same philosophy to concerts — ditching the formalities of concert etiquette and leaving the performers to connect with audiences in unconventional spaces.


When they are not busy performing guitar soundscapes in strangers’ basements, Swimmer spends most of their time feeding their rabbit bananas and searching for queer subtext in pre-21st century media.
