Director of Research

David joined Falmouth as associate professor in Music and Sound Art in 2010. Now as Director of Research, David has responsibility for the strategic leadership and management of research development at the University.  As part of this role, David manages the Research and Development team and has oversight of the University’s submission to the Research Excellence Framework 2021 (REF) and the University’s preparation for research degree awarding powers (RDAP).  Working with the Professoriate, Academic Directors and Research Supervisory teams, David also leads the recruitment and development of a thriving community of postgraduate research students, while overseeing the delivery of research student and supervisor training and development.  In this latter role, David is co-director of the AHRC-funded 3D3 Centre for Doctoral Training.

David comes from a background in music and sound art and has garnered international acclaim through a significant portfolio of award-winning creative works and publications.  With architect Frances Crow, David is a partner in liminal, a practice that explores the relationship between sound, listening and space.  Their work together encompasses site-specific interventions, gallery installations, performances, research and consultancy and is the basis of much of David’s scholarly research.  David’s music has been performed and broadcast around Europe and North America and has won a number of international competitions including Bourges International Electroacoustic Music Competition, Cornelius Cardew Prize, E.A.R (Hungarian Radio) and the George Butterworth prize. As a sound designer David has made permanent, multi-ward winning installations for The Imperial War Museum (UK), The New York Historical Society (USA), The Thomas Jefferson Museum (USA) and the Guinness Storehouse (IRL), amongst others. He is also active as a mix engineer with recent credits including score mixes for The Domino Effect, The Village and Tin Star. 

David studied Music and Religious Studies at the University of Wales, Bangor and then completed a PhD in music at the University of Birmingham. From 1996-2001, he completed residencies at the Banff Centre for the Arts, Canada, Les Ateliers UPIC, Paris and the Technisches Universität, Berlin where he was a guest of the DAAD. After working at Dartington College of Arts since 2001, David wrote Falmouth’s Creative Music Technology BA award, which launched in 2010 and for which he was previously course coordinator.  David has taught widely across the UK, Europe and the USA.

Research Interests

Research interests and expertise

David's personal research is focused on the relationship between sound and space and the cultural history of sounding objects.  With Frances Crow (as liminal), David has been working for over 5 years on a portfolio of practice research, which explores the cultural significance of sacred and civic bells. This work encompasses installation, performances, film and written research.

From 2014-2016 David was co-investigator for the ARHC-funded Online Orchestra project, which brought together children and amateur musicians who live in remote locations to connect together online to make music in real time. The outcomes from this project were published in a special edition of the Journal of Music, Technology and Education, which David co-edited with the project’s principle investigator, Prof. Michael Rofe. 

Current research projects include co-editing the Oxford Handbook of Sound Art with Jane Grant and John Matthias and coordinating a GCRF-funded project with colleagues at Falmouth University and the University of Johannesburg, which addresses gender equality in design education.  David authored the three-year strategic plan on which this project is based and it was one of 10 commended by Research England nationally.
