David says: “my focus is on serious contemporary music as a means to listening pleasure. I choose to write music that I would enjoy, and hope others enjoy, listening to. I find that much of the serious contemporary music we hear these days seems to be an experiment, art for art’s sake, and is very angular and jarring, but I want music to soothe the soul, to please the ear, to relax to. So, a lot of my music is perhaps a little old-fashioned in style. Definitely, most of it is written in “traditional tonality”, quite deliberately. Having said that, however, I am interested in pushing the boundaries of tonality a little to see how far I can go without it becoming unpleasant. Beauty is, of course, in the ear of the beholder, so what may be unpleasant to me, might be gorgeous to another. For me, it is a journey, a collection of my life’s work – one which I hope at the end of my life others will say that it has value in one way or another.”
