David M. Hoyle - Composer  

David M. Hoyle studied composition in the 1990s at Goldsmiths College, London University under Sadie Harrison and David Carhart, before achieving an MMus at the Royal College of Music under Joseph Horovitz and Francis Shaw.

Between 2000 and 2002, he collaborated with the Gary Rowe Dance Company in three multi-media events, including providing electronic music for The Messenger (Part 1) and music and sound design for As It Is, a work combining simultaneous dance, text, film, electro-acoustic sounds and lighting designs, performed at venues in London.

Pianist Jamie Crofts played a number of his piano pieces at concerts in Brighton between 2008 and 2011, including ones specially written, such as the tripartite Restricted Movements and Nine Takes on a Daydream.

David collaborated with the film-maker Dan Childs on two promotional art videos for Xobo Furniture, providing original music for both between 2011 and 2013 in which year Le Grand Festin played at the London Short Film Festival and the Schwerin Kunstfilmfest.

Under the aegis of New Music Brighton, he has had a number of performances including works for Quartet, Quintet and Sextet alongside electro-acoustic pieces such as Bleeper.

He is currently working on a set of piano Preludes in which each hand plays in its own key.
