David Young is a composer currently living and working in Berlin. He was the Artistic Director of Australia’s only contemporary chamber opera company, Chamber Made Opera, from 2010–2013, and was the founding Artistic Director of Aphids which remains one of Australia’s most innovative cross-artform producing organisations.
With musical and aesthetic interests that genuinely reach into all artforms, David’s composition has frequently extended beyond the merely aural. This approach is mirrored in his artistic direction, whether it be for the programming of a small dynamic arts company, or a large-scale festival such as Next Wave (he was director of Melbourne’s Next Wave Festival in 2002).
