The music of electric violinist and composer David Schulman has aired nationally on NPR’s Weekend Edition, and has been described as “mysterious and beautiful” by The Washington Post.

A student of the jazz, salsa, and disco violinist Eddie Drennon, David loves to improvise and generate new work with modern dance companies.  He has served as musician-in-residence at Dance Exchange since 2011, creating original music for “Andy Warhol’s Silver Clouds” and “New Hampshire Ave: This Is a Place To… ” and frequently playing for classes.

David has also composed original scores for choreographers Christopher K. Morgan, Andrea Olsen, Daniel Burkholder, Stephanie Miracle, Graham Brown, Margot Greenlee, and Uprooted Dance, and has toured and performed at the Kennedy Center with PEARSONWIDRIG DANCETHEATER. He is featured along with Jesse Manno and Peter Jones on Tigger Benford’s 2014 release, “Vessel of Gratitude.” To hear David’s album “Quiet Life Motel” and more of his music, visit:quietlifemotel.com
