David Michael Hyde is a composer and music creative for film, live performance and fixed media.
Born and raised in Austin, Texas, David explored many styles of music ranging from classical to jazz to rock. Over the last 20 years, he has recorded and produced artists in the pop and contemporary worship genres and scored several award-winning independent films. As an established film composer, he effectively communicates emotion and story in his music.
Based on his experience as a brass player, acoustic guitarist and electronic musician, David's composing sensibility prioritizes the lyrical long-form melody, orchestral clarity of line, and emotively tonal. These preferences engage the first-time listener. Combined with his love of jazz, the marching arts, and interval theory, the amalgamation produces a truly unique compositional voice.
He enjoys collaborating with filmmakers, choreographers and performing artists. He and his wife Lisa have been married 30 years and have two grown children, Rebecca and Justus.
David supports the American Composers Forum (ACF) and is a member of the Texas Bandmasters Association (TBA), Texas Music Educators Association (TMEA), and Broadcast Music, Inc. (BMI).
