David has recently finished working on EDIT
which premiered at the Edinburgh Film Festival.  Providing recording, mixing and music programming for the beautiful score by Joe McAlinden.

David's first commission from Cryptic was The Embassy - a simulation of an envisioned future, through the lens of the extravagant Embassy of New Great Britain. The evening’s entertainment included the performance of New Great Britain’s quintessential tribute, Requiem for a World – commissioned music from composer David Donaldson scored for counter-tenor Steve Dugardin, Astrid String Quartet and electronics.
