Emmy-nominated composer, author, and educator, David Dvorin has had his music performed in numerous new music and multimedia festivals around the United States and Europe, including the Carmel Performing Arts Festival, Big Sur Experimental Music Festival, Music in the Mountains Festival, Wet Ink, Palais Idéal, Sound & Vision Festival, TechArt20xx, SEAMUS, Kansas City Electronic Music Arts and Alliance, 60x60 Project, FirstWorks/Pixilerations, and the Macedonian SOCOM Festival. His twenty-five minute multimedia piece, As Alice, written for the California E.A.R. Unit, was featured in the ensemble’s 2011-2012 concert touring season.
In addition to producing several CDs and DVDs of his compositional work, David is active as a performer on both guitar and electronics, preferring the intimate musical interactions of small ensemble settings such as duos and trios. Some of his current performance projects include his chamber-jazz duo, Pull-String with violinist Matej Seda, and the electro-acoustic duo, Zap! with multi-reeds player Randy McKean, both of which also serve as vehicles for David’s original compositions.
David’s artistic and technical skills have also been utilized by others, including such musical luminaries as composer Terry Riley and the Kronos Quartet, for whom he designed and produced the electroacoustic music for the 2002 NASA commissioned piece, Sun Rings, and mixed the electronic music for the 2008 Nonesuch release, Cusp of Magic.
