Coming from a rock guitar background, Dave Molk embarked on jazz performance until problems with tendonitis lifted his compositional focus to the forefront. Many of Dave’s works are for small ensembles and solo instruments, although recent efforts include orchestra, black box theater, and live-remixing/DJing. He writes mainly for pitched and non-pitched percussion, combining an energized rhythmic propulsion with expressive timbres.
Dave teaches composition and theory at Georgetown. He’s friends with Olde Dirty Beathoven. He is a member of District New Music Coalition and Living Room Music. He is a leader in CCON (ccondmv.com), an organization devoted to supporting undocumented communities in higher ed in the DMV.
