Davíð Þór jónsson on David Thor Jonsson
I am a pianist, composer, improviser, performing artist and a multitasking musician in life,currently living and working in Reykjavík. I was born 1978 in Seyðisfjörður, Iceland and have been playing the piano and keyboards since age of 9.
My main focus and interest is in improvisation, composition and performance of music. How improvisation and composition can meet effortlessly as a creation of musical ideas and sounds. I am also thoughtful of the general passion & drive behind creation of things, in what way they are presented and passed on to people, in music, arts and life in general.
Since childhood I´ve collaborated with a whole spectrum of artist, from obscure troubadours in the countryside to stadium bands, covering all fields og music, both in Iceland and abroad. I have also composed and arranged a great deal of music for Theater, Film, Art installations, performances and videos of all kinds.
Released my first album Rask in 2002, and now I am currently composing and working on a series of records with solo piano music for Radio Bongo with Improvised Pianoworks I (broadcast01) as the first Radio Bongo release.
