Biography of Brent Michael Davids
Composer Brent Michael Davids holds composition degrees from the University of Northern Illinois and Arizona State University. His works have been performed by the Kronos Quartet, the Joffrey Ballet, and the New Mexico Symphony Orchestra. He has received awards from the NEA, Meet the Composer, ASCAP, the Rockefeller foundation, and the Sundance Institute.
Davids’ music combines the sounds of his native Mohican musical language with the sounds of his formal music education. He uses such things as dancers in traditional costumes on stage with a symphony orchestra to which he has added native instruments. He feels that it is important for Native Americans to respond to his works; he tries to create an “American Sound” that, unlike the works of Copland, Thomson, and Bernstein, contains an indigenous, Native American influence.
