Suffering from burn out after a ten-year church planting experience in Manhattan, David sought out contemplative Christian practices to help rejuvenate his soul.
This pursuit began to influence his music writing, which had been predominantly musical underscore for reality television. David began imagining a music he could listen to while sitting in silence and practicing Imaginative Prayer, a Christian contemplative practice. Imagining this 'underscore' of the inward journey gave him license to experiment as he started creating slow, meditative music with electric guitar, viola, and sampling software.
In 2019 David began performing his music live. His first performance was at a contemplative retreat hosted by The 166 church during an Imaginative Prayer exercise. The experience was profound, as participants connected deeply to the guided scripture meditation and to the music that was helping them imagine the story. Shortly after this performance, NYC yoga instructor Allison Dugala invited David to perform music for one of her classes at Unit 108 Yoga in Brooklyn. The performance was a success, and he was invited to perform for more classes. David used these performances as opportunities to create new pieces and observe how they impacted listeners and instructors in the class. He loved the connection he felt with everyone in the room while improvising the new material. In his forthcoming release, 'Awakening,' David uses the material from these live sessions.
