David Stephen Grant (b. 1988) has studied composition at The Norwegian
Academy of Music and The Norwegian Film School. In 2017 he graduated with a Master's degree in film music
composition with the original score for Magnus Meyer Arnesen's movie Når jeg faller [As I Fall]
(2018) which has been nominated for an Amanda Award for "Best Original Score" at the Norwegian
International Film Festival 2019.
With an interest in technology and programming, much of David's music features rich, dark, electronic timbres
where acoustic and synthetic sound sources are tightly entwined. Still, he enjoyes composing music in a broad
range of expressions, from experimental chamber music to film music and pop musicals.
Besides working on his own music, David has freelanced as a music copyist for a number of publishers and private
clients, and has previously worked as a Software Tester on Dorico—Steinberg Media Technologies
GmbH's software for professional music engraving. He has been chairman of Young Nordic Music Norway and a board
member in nyMusikks komponistgruppe, and since 2019 he has been employed as Classical Editor at
Edition Wilhelm Hansen, Copenhagen.
