After a period in a noise group, approaching song structured musical development led to the rock band Random.

David has also recorded with many artists like Talk Talk, The Pretenders, Joan Armatrading and Paul McCartney.
He wrote and produced the music for the following feature films: L’Uomo Perfetto, Italian animated film La Gabbianella E Il Gatto, Lucky & Zorba (translated into Italian, French, German and currently being translated into Dutch and Spanish).
He also worked on the score for the Golden Globe nominated feature film Rabbit-Proof Fence.
As well as being a composer in his own right he collaborates with Richard Evans as The Footnote. They were responsible for the soundtrack for the incredible Sea Monsters 3-D, the first ever Imax 3-D movie.
