David Pocknee is a composer, writer, editor, performer, artist and coder, currently working as a researcher for Ableton in Berlin. He is trained as a composer but produces art in a lot of different disciplines and styles, from straight-forward concert music to site-specific installations, books, zines, websites, films, net-art, exhibitions, paintings, conceptual albums, artist collectives, comedy and T-shirts. He starts from the principle that composition is a historical lineage of techniques that have traditionally been applied to music but need not be.

He stopped composing and making art in November 2019.
