David Morneau is a composer of an entirely undecided genre. Described by Molly Sheridan as a "shining beacon" of inspiration, his diverse work illuminates ideas about our culture, issues concerning creativity, and even the very nature of music itself. His eclectic output includes Love Songs, an album of hybrid pop/art songs that combine Shakespeare’s Sonnets with contemporary poetry (described in NM421 as "elegantly rendered"), 60x365, a year-long podcast project for which he composed a new one-minute piece every day (labeled “impressive” by NPR’s All Things Considered), and Broken Memory, an album of noisy drones and beats extracted from a vintage Nintendo Gameboy. A review on Grindthieves International exclaims that Broken Memory "absolutely wrecks shop.… For that, David Morneau wins."
His current project, Not Less Than the Good, is a secularized morning prayer service based on Henry Thoreau’s Walden. It is being composed for New Thread Quartet (a New York based saxophone ensemble) and will include field recordings made at Walden Pond and read excerpts from Thoreau’s book.
Since 2009 Morneau has been composer-in-residence with Immigrant Breast Nest, an underground electronic music label in New York City. In that time he has released 4 solo albums, contributed to 3 remix compilations and produced B’ak’tun Waning, a special compilation project in 2012 that released a new track every month as a countdown to the Mayan apocalypse on December 21, 2012.
