David Nunn is a London-based composer whose music has been performed internationally by ensembles such as The Choir of St. John’s College, Cambridge, ensemble recherche and The Hermes Experiment. 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. He studies with Helen Grime at the Royal Academy of Music, having previously studied with Julian Anderson and Christian Mason.
