David Nunn is a composer based in London. His music has been performed internationally: in the UK, France, Germany, Malta, Switzerland, Hong Kong, Singapore, New Zealand and the USA. He has recently written for ensemble recherche, The Gesualdo Six, The Hermes Experiment, and Psappha. His music is often characterised by textures which seem to revolve and rotate as if in a kaleidoscope. It is sometimes minimal and introspective, and at other times joyous and chaotic.
David currently studies with Helen Grime at the Royal Academy of Music, having previously studied with Julian Anderson and Christian Mason. He has been generously supported with a bursary from the Ralph Vaughan Williams Trust and a scholarship from The Countess of Munster Musical Trust.
Upcoming commissions include works for Psappha (in collaboration with poet Louise Wallwein); the New London Children’s Choir; Equinox Duo; and The Choir of St. John’s College, Cambridge. If you would like to perform his music or commission a piece, please get in touch.
