Mr. Broome took the liberty of disassembling Cage’s unified set of 16 sonatas and 4 interludes and reassembling it with fresh parts... In Mr. Broome’s accounts of the sonatas, the randomness of Cage’s prepared piano was tamed: its light thumps, clicks, rattles and buzzes, along with the piano’s normal timbres, were carefully orchestrated and thoroughly controlled. Mostly, Mr. Broome focused on the music’s delicacy and produced a light, airy sound that tilted toward the gentler of the “permanent emotions” Cage mentioned, with only occasional bursts of assertiveness. - The New York Times

This Window Makes Me Feel, not quite half the length of its disc mate, is denser still. Trish McKenna urgently whispers lines from a Robert Fitterman poem fashioned with random Google searches. Hai-Ting Chinn intones the title languorously; Lesser, Beyer and pianist David Broome provide a human-paced repose amid the chatter. - Time Out New York

“Beside Me,” the suite of three dances and one video segment that gives the program its name, is set to juicily atmospheric music composed and performed live by Rose Bellini (cello), David Broome (piano) and Olivia dePrato (violin). Like the video, it adds to the dance’s quiet complexity and mystery. - The New York Times

Bio

David Broome's music is rooted in the blues and nurtured by the avant guard. David is paving a new path for the singing pianist that is a far cry from much of the singer/songwriters of today. The groove is hard and slow, the technique is sparklingly clear, and his performances have an air of darkness that are occasionally ridiculed by his dry sense of humor.

David Broome's performances have been appreciated in America, Australia, Russia and across Europe. He has been described in the New York Times as a "deft and focused performer," as well as an artist who composes "juicily atmospheric music." Time-Out NY has commented on his “human-paced repose” and The AU Review described him as being “soaked with unbelievable talent.”

As a New York-based performer, David has presented a wide variety of genre-bending, unclassifiable music at such venues as Merkin Hall, Le Poisson Rouge, The 92nd St. Y, The Whitney Museum, The Stone, and Issue Project Room, among others. He also frequently collaborates with dancers (Limon Dance Co., Maura Donohue, Jen Abrams), theater artists (Story Pirates, TACT, John Jesurun), and comedians (Boombox Kids, Diamond Lion, Choral Rage) in performance.

David has recorded works by J.G. Thirlwell (Tzadik), John Supko (New Amsterdam Records) and the members of Ensemble Pamplemousse (New Carrier.) Mister Broome has also lectured on composition and music notation at the Art Institute of Chicago, Hartwick College and Southern Wesleyan University.

David’s compositions have been presented by the MATA Festival, HI-Fi New Music, Red Light New Music, and the 92nd St. Y’s Fridays @ Noon. He has also received support from the Argosy Foundation, the Yvar Mikhashoff Trust for New Music, NYSCA, the A. Lindsay and Olive B. O’Conner Foundation, and Meet the Composer. He has participated in artist residencies at the Banff Center, Harold Arts, the Seedlot Project, and the Rensing Center.

David holds a Master’s of Music from the Manhattan School of Music and a Bachelor’s of Music from Towson University where he studied with pianists - Phillip Kawin, Anthony de Mare and Reynaldo Reyes.
