David Gunn has written for symphony orchestra, chamber ensembles, soloists, adventurous vocal groups, and theremin. Ray Bradbury’s Pandemonium Theatre Company has five times trod the California boards accompanied by his incidental music. He has written three quartets for Ethel, and the Vermont Contemporary Music Ensemble has commissioned no fewer than 13 pieces from him. (Also no more than 13: a composer’s life is not an easy one.) In 2003, Albany Records released Somewhere East of Topeka, a CD of his chamber music performed by the VCME. Brisk sales are anticipated any day now. Other commissioners include the Vermont Symphony Orchestra, the Vermont Youth Orchestra, Essential Music, the Montpelier Chamber Orchestra, Social Band, Laurel Ann Maurer, and Chris Potter. Two of his compositions for flute and playback were recommended by the NFA’s Low Flute Committee for the 2011 and 2012 Selected Flute Repertoire. For 10˝ years, Gunn co-hosted the radio show Kalvos & Damian’s New Music Bazaar, which won an award once. Or twice, actually. And in 2004, the Vermont Arts Council awarded him its Citation of Meritorious Service to the Arts. Gunn lives simultaneously in Barre, Vermont, and in hope of peace on earth, good will towards men, and a pile of cash in the bank.
