D. Edward Davis is a composer of electronic and acoustic music. His work engages with the sounds of the environment, exploring processes, patterns, and systems inspired by nature. Recent performers of his work include violinist Erik Carlson, pianist Ingrid Lee, Rootstock Percussion Trio, and the Wet Ink Ensemble. Davis is currently in the PhD program at Duke University, where he studies composition with Scott Lindroth and John Supko. He also has degrees from Brooklyn College and Northwestern University, and his former teachers include David Grubbs, Amnon Wolman, and Jay Alan Yim.
“dawn song” presents frozen moments of "Aubade," a cabaret song written by Paul Delmet. At first each moment is surrounded by empty space, but as the events get closer and closer together, they begin to overlap, and the outlines of the song are gradually revealed.
