DANIELLE JABLONSKI
Producer/ CIO


Danielle Jablonski (Australian) is Producer and CIO of insite.   Also nimble-brained of right and left, Danielle has spent her entire (well, almost) life making music and organizing for social change.  A classically-trained cellist who prefers 20th-century composers, Danielle has performed with orchestras, quartets, rock bands, singer/songwriters, in recording sessions, as live accompaniment to theater, for political rallies and for an Off-Broadway play.
 
Danielle most recently recorded music for the feature-length documentary American Carny and the Off-Broadway play The Cinnamon Moths for Britpack Theatre, written by  Michael Harris and David Kantounas. She has performed live with composer Terry Dame at the
Working Theatre in Abundance, a play directed by the Obie Award-winning director (City Water Tunnel #3), Marty Pottenger.  Abundance is a community arts performance project gathering stories and exploring ways that people of different classes, races and ages negotiate money in their daily lives.  Danielle also played non-classical cello at Arlene Grocery for Shara Worden's New York modal rock band, Awry, and on its second CD, Quiet B-Sides.  She also recently recorded a demo with folk-soul singer/songwriter, Sonji, in NYC.
