David Torn
David is a composer, texturalist, guitarist, producer & whatnot of actual international stature, renowned for his unique musical voice which seems to span and un-define a range of idioms and styles.
 
His characterful and compositionally textural work has had material impact and influence on both film scoring - through his own scores, in addition to his creative contributions to scores by Carter Burwell, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Cliff Martinez, Howard Shore, Mark Isham, and others - and, generally, upon contemporary electric, electro-acoustic and electronic music.
 
In addition to the medium of film scoring, David's creative contributions have graced and assisted the works of other musical artists-of-note as diverse as David Bowie, k.d. lang, Tim Berne, John Legend, Madonna, Tori Amos, Bill Bruford, Tony Levin, Mick Karn, David Sylvian, Chocolate Genius, Michael Shrieve, Steve Roach, Patrick O'Hearn, Matt Chamberlain, Meshell Ndegeocello and Don Cherry. The New York Times described Torn's 2015 solo release, Only Sky, as "[an abstract landscape that is] both immersive and deftly disorienting."
