David Minor studied at the Joffrey Ballet School where he received his Masters training in Classical and Contemporary Ballet. His childhood was spent deeply immersed in the arts as a student at the Palo Alto Children's Theatre. He holds degrees in Dance and Linguistics along with a number of university fellowship titles at such institutions as Stanford, Cal Poly & The University of Varanasi  (where he studied as a guest PhD researcher in Indian Classical Voice/Music under the instruction of the renown Saraya R. Sonni). David is one of the original founding members of the Karmanoia Theatre in Berlin. He has had a range of acting roles in theatre and film. In 2016, David was commissioned by the Royal Danish Theatre to compose a full-length ballet entitled "Hungry for Blue". His current endeavors include a collaboration with Heather Knight at Oregon State University, where they are creating a series of robot ballet operas, as well as multiple musical scores for European film and television. 


David moved to Berlin in 2005, where he made his musical debut on Nonine Recordings. His first album 'Sparse' was nominated for the German Record Critic's Prize. He has since released a number of albums and EPs with such names as Klaus Scheuermann (Hansa Studios), Ray Okpara (Mobilee Records) and Re. You (Mobilee Records).


David’s musical style is a unique blend of elements ranging from electronic post-modern classical, to smoky cinematic jazz. His vocal style has been described as being "... like Jeff Buckley dancing with Billie Holiday in a Magritte painting... " - (Say Hello Max, 12/09). David works between his composition/vocal career and the University of Hawaii, where he studies endangered languages of the South Pacific.
