Coming from a rock guitar background, Dave Molk embarked on jazz performance until problems with tendonitis lifted his compositional focus to the forefront. He writes mainly for pitched and non-pitched percussion, combining an energized rhythmic propulsion with expressive timbres.
Dave teaches composition and theory at Georgetown. He’s close friends with producer Olde Dirty Beathoven, a founding member of District New Music Coalition, Living Room Music, a board member of New Works for Percussion Project, and a member of the Educational Committee for the Boulanger Initiative. Outside of music, Dave is a leader of Cross Campus Organizing Network, an organization devoted to supporting undocumented communities in higher ed in the DMV.
