A French composer born July 3, 1978 in Nîmes.
After studying music and musicology at the Conservatory and the University of Montpellier, David Hudry obtained an aggregation in music before joining the composition and new technology classes at the Paris Conservatory. A pupil notably of Emmanuel Nunes, Stefano Gervasoni and Luis Naon, he completed his training with the composition and computer music course at Ircam.
His research into the æsthetic aspects of new technologies led him to develop his own interface of sound spatialisation and articulation (Impromptu pour un monodrame for bassoon and real time electronics, 2007). He readily took inspiration from the graphic arts and gave a visual character to sound matter. His catalogue reveals a poetic and a dramaturgy defined by the combination of types of style, register, modes of play and electronic treatment.
Distinguished notably by the Prix Pierre Cardin of the Académie des Beaux-Arts (2012) and the Young Composer Prize of the Ernst Von Siemens Foundation (2016), he has composed works for solo instrument (Verwandlung II for cello and electronics, first performed by Sévrine Ballon, 2010) as well as chamber music (Résurgences for string quartet, first performed by the Arditti Quartet, 2010), music for ensemble or orchestra (Introduction à Iðavöllr, commissioned by Radio France, 2013; The Forgotten city, commissioned by the Ensemble Intercontemporain, 2016), and sound installations (Passeggiata, commissioned by the French State).
