David T. Little

New Jersey-born composer/percussionist David T. Little has been named the winner in the inaugural Digital Composer-in-Residence competition launched by the London-based DilettanteMusic.com. The competition culminated on November 5 at 7:00 p.m. Greenwich Mean Time with a concert event at London’s Wilton’s Music Hall, the oldest surviving music hall in the world, where the London Sinfonietta, under the direction of Charles Hazlewood, performed a program curated by Little and the two other finalists—Canadian composer Aaron Gervais and Taiwanese composer Chiayu—which featured their own contest entries alongside works that influenced them. This event has officially launched David T. Little’s year-long residency during which he will be able to further interact with Dilettante members with a “Composer’s Corner,” promoted and directly linked from the site homepage, a podcast series, online master-classes, and forum discussions. The residency will conclude with a live performance of a newly commissioned work, at a date and venue to be announced.
