David Nunn is a composer and music educator based in London. His output encompasses instrumental, vocal, choral, and electronic music, and ranges from solo to orchestral in scope. Through his music, he aims to create an escapism for the listener, and his music is often driven by circular processes and immersive textures. It is sometimes minimal and introspective, and at other times joyous and chaotic. He is a founder and co-director of Stomping Ground Collective.

He has written for groups such as The Hermes Experiment, Psappha, and the New London Children's Choir. His choral music has been performed by numerous choirs across Europe, in the US, and in the Far East, and his choral and electronic music is featured on the Choir of St. John's College, Cambridge's August 2023 release New Millenium.


He studied with Helen Grime at the Royal Academy of Music, where he won the RCS Muriel Dawson Award and Alan Bush Composition Prize, and he also studied with Julian Anderson and Christian Mason. His music is published non-exclusively by Black Dot Press.
