As a creative musician, David works on complete realisations, taking care of composition, arrangement, and production alike. These three processes can also be dealt with separately. David either develops and realizes one step after the other, or works in collaboration with or for other artists.
Taught in classical and Jazz composition and arrangement, David's profound knowledge of music from baroque to electro, from traditional to modern music, and his openness make him versatile in many styles.
As an arranger, David develops music and gives it an aesthetic direction. Responding to the artists', composers', or producers' wishes, he suggests a musical universe.
