David Ibbett is an electro-acoustic composer and producer living in London, UK.
Growing up in Coventry, David developed a passion for music from an early age, performing classical, jazz and rock music with equal energy. He then went on to study contemporary composition at Cambridge University and the Guildhall School of Music and Drama.
David’s music blends the warmth and expression of classical music with the raw edge of electronic impulses, a rare bridge between musical worlds. Direct, energizing, but also deeply thoughtful, his musical explorations are rooted in the shape of a song – a melodically led music of discovery.
David balances his solo work with a variety of collaborative projects in dance, theatre, film and installation.
His music has been performed at the Wigmore Hall, Kings Place, Barbican, LSO St. Luke’s, Southwell Minster, West Road Cambridge, Rag Factory, ICA, Vortex Jazz Club, Robin Howard Dance Theatre, Laban Dance Theatre, Cambridge ADC, Aldeburgh Festival, Bath Festival, Leeds Festival, Huddersfield Festival, City of London Festival, Aspen Music Festival.
