David Brynjar Franzson’s music has been described as “sonically imaginative … part installation, all mood” by the Los Angeles Times and “engagingly tactile” by the New York Times. Through long–standing collaborations with ensembles such as Ensemble Adapter, the Mivos Quartet and Yarn|Wire, he has developed a musical language that explores the internal dynamics of sounds and instruments as well as the social dynamics of performance. His scores are published via Schott Music and his music can be heard on Innova, Spektral, Smekkleysa and Carrier Records, a NYC based record label that he co–runs with Sam Pluta and Jeff Snyder.
Born and raised in Iceland, David Brynjar Franzson lives and works in New York.
