David is a composer, visual artist and improvising oboist based in Hadfield, UK with interests in density, texture, noise, waste, commercialism, collage, the everyday, the absurd and their manifestations in the internet age.


He is the founder of Square Ears records and, to date, his music has been released on both his own label, Difficult Art and Music and Anticipating Nowhere and aired on Freeness on BBC Radio 3. As an improviser, he is interested in reconceptualising the oboe as a noise instrument and has performed both at Square Ears label nights and the Curious Ear series in Manchester.


David holds a PhD in composition from the Royal Northern College of Music and is a former winner of the RPS Composition Prize.
