I am David Wallace, and I’m a composer, arranger, orchestrator and producer from Sydney, Australia. I create music in many different styles ranging from rock songs to jazz arrangements, from synth programming to large-scale orchestral works. As a composer I am always experimenting with interesting things – interesting sounds and instruments, time signatures, progressive song structures, techniques and all kinds of genre combinations.
I have several projects happening at the moment: playing keys in my Prog-pop band Enter the Ninja, and guitar and vocals in my acoustic duo Ocean Echoes, writing and producing for both, along with my own solo work. I am currently producing ETN’s debut EP.
I am also currently composing my first large-scale orchestral work “Xanthorrhoea” – a 20th century-inspired work of four movements based around the events of a bushfire and featuring minimalist, serialist and atonal techniques, among others.
Video game music is something I am passionate about and I was lucky enough to be part of team Brainfingers at the 2012 Global Game Jam, where I composed music and made sound effects for our game “Spiritd” which was created from scratch in just 48 hours.
I’m currently into my final year at the Australian Institute of Music, soon to graduate with a B Mus (Composition and Music Production).
