After early music studies while growing up in the Midwest, David studied composition with James Sellars at the University of North Texas and Hartt School of Music in Hartford, Connecticut. In the early 1980s he moved to Paris, where he now pursues a parallel career as a humorist. His “Elastic Tango” has been recorded by Ursula Oppens and Yvar Mikhashoff and choreographed by Tere O’Connor for Mikhail Baryshnikov. His electronic/spoken word piece “Mary and Ann,” based on a text by Samuel Beckett, is included in the Innova Recordings anthology Sonic Circuits VIII. His satire pieces have been published by McSweeney’s Internet Tendency, MacQueen’s Quinterly, thebigjewel.com and parisupdate.com, and in the book Quorum of One (Drake Mabry Publishing).
