"Working with David was an absolute pleasure, and it couldn't have been any smoother. Not only did he deliver the music in an extremely timely fashion, he was also very receptive of any feedback or any notes we had. Perhaps most appreciated, however, is the level of care and attention to detail David uses, whether it's in the spotting session or in the tracks themselves. He's by far the most collaborative composer I've worked with thus far!" - Alec Bewkes - Director, Poot Tax Film

It has been such a joy working with David on our film, and while his beautiful score not only elevated the overall quality of the movie, his constant encouragement and support of the project are what has meant the most to me. David was patient and flexible throughout the entire process, revising and collaborating alongside me to make sure that we were all coming out of it feeling as happy as possible with the final product. David truly cares about his work and it shows in not just the quality of his scores, but in the joy he'll bring you throughout the creative process." - Aria Inthavong - Director, "Nowhere Men" Film

I'm humbled that you shared your talent with me and my film. It's breathtaking. So honored Dave." - Christine Altan - Director, Altan Films - Film "Namaste"

I am happy to say our objective was exceeded!" - Ahmed-El Mawas - Director, Film "A Love Story"

David's sensibilities as a composer for film and his understanding of filmmaking make him an easy collaborator. I'd work with him again anytime!"

"Working with David was a truly exciting experience! As a filmmaker who appreciates music and the visual media, it was great to work with someone who understands the importance of fusing the two mediums. David is so talented at interpreting and executing the music for the visual medium, that it is nearly impossible to not want to work with him again on future projects. As a filmmaker, it amazes me how he interprets the themes of my medium flawlessly, through his medium - music; while still maintaining his artistic voice and letting it shine through seamlessly. It was an honor to work with him."
- Davis Northern - Director, "Romeo and His Juliet.

GAME MUSIC SCORING & SOUND DESIGN
"David delivers through his music the passion, power and vision to my game productions" - John Farnsworth, Producer at Tom Clancy's Red Storm Entertainment/Ubisoft.
"Audio...Brilliant!" - FROM: Games Domain Review
"What was truly inspiring was the music. It was second to none." - FROM: AGN3D
"The music in this game sounds like masterpieces of orchestrated music! The upbeat and strong emphasis is heart-pounding!" - FROM: Glide Underground
"The music score had the rousing sound of a Jack Ryan movie score. It pumped up the blood with staccato rhythm and military trumpetry." - FROM: The Adrenalin Vault
"Great audio and awesome mission briefings". - FROM: Games First
"The sound in this game is great! Your forces respond in realistic and clear voices, the firing from your weapons are nice and beefy, and the enthusiasm in your forces' voices are real as they announce 'tank kill!" - FROM PC GAME.com
"The sound effects are so good you might actually soil yourself. If you have a speaker system with a subwoofer, you're in for a treat. You may actually forget you're in the safety of your own home. Another great feature of Force 21 is its soundtrack. It'll get you pumped up in no time." - FROM: PC GAME.com
"The audio effects are something that deserves mention. From tank fire to helicopter noise everything sounds great, (especially after I piped it through my stereo and let it rip). There really is no better feeling than to sneak up on an unsuspecting enemy position with a healthy-sized attack force, popping up long enough to launch a barrage of anti-tank missiles and tank shells and to then listen to your commanders call out each enemy kill. It was music to my ears." - FROM: GAMES First
"The audio comes across so subtly that you just sit there and go "yeaaahhh." You hear and feel the "whoosh" of rockets from the helicopters, and the tanks and artillery are felt in the pit of your stomach with their deep booms. Okay, enough said; the audio works and works very well." - FROM: Gamezilla PC Games
"The game has great music. It's Good, Clean, and Clear." - FROM: Game Tropics
"The rumble of engines, the commands over the radio, and the gut-wrenching explosions made for a very horrific feeling of real warfare." - FROM: Game Zone
SOUND DESIGN | SFX | SYNTH PROGRAMMING | SAMPLING
"Gets started with a bang! The noise loops on disk one are some of the most useful I've heard. They are very cool. There is a nice mixture of super tight machine beats, human-feeling funk grooves, and loops with synth accompaniment. This is truly a monster toolbox to build all of your musical creations. The bad news is...well there isn't any! " - Keyboard Magazine ***** 5 Star Review September 1996 issue. Review of Syntonic Generator SFX CD
"Outstanding! World Class Hollywood Sound Effects in one library!" Over 250 "5-star" customer reviews *****The Hollywood Edge - HPX Sound Effects Library

Slammin' stuff! It's the wild stuff that sends this into five-star territory !" - Keyboard Magazine ***** 5 Star Review September 1996 issue. Review of Vortexual Amplitude SFX CD
"Vortexual Amplitude stands apart completely from the common analog synthesizer products for many distinct reasons. An absolutely brilliant resource for analog keys and loops. We envisage Vortexual Amplitude to appease even the most finicky of synthesizer enthusiasts!!!" - FROM: the Shark-What is Net
