David Hahn grew up in Philadelphia where his early music experiences were playing guitar in rock bands and musicals. He later pursued classical music professionally and performed on lute, guitar, and mandolin with such groups as the Boston Symphony Orchestra, the San Francisco Symphony, the Seattle Symphony, Musica Nel Chiostro in Florence, and the City of London Festival. He taught at the New England Conservatory of Music and toured widely with the Boston Renaissance Ensemble featuring vocalist Andrea von Ramm.
David presently focuses on music composition, electric guitar explorations, and sound design. He creates diverse styles of music ranging from the experimental sounds of processed guitars to musique concrete sound collages to more traditional settings featuring instruments and voices. Much of his substantial repertoire has been commissioned and performed by professional ensembles and soloists, including the Minneapolis Guitar Quartet, the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra, Cem Duruoz, the MARE Duo, and the Shank-Hagedorn Duo. He also collaborates with artists in film, theater, spoken word, and other media.
David Hahn will put out a new project with Fin in 2013. The upcoming 12" single and full length feature art by Cal Shenkel. The first released single from the project was I Hate Being White (Steve Fisk Remix). You can listen to the single by clicking the thumbnail below.
