David Dramm (b. 1961) was born in Illinois, growing up in San Diego, California. His composition studies began with Robert Erickson at University of California, San Diego, and later at Yale University with Louis Andriessen and Earle Brown. The Volkskrant described his music as "ground-breaking terrain between Charles Ives, Jimi Hendrix and Lou Reed." The NRC Handlesblad wrote, "As rock musician, writer and composer, Dramm is creating a furore in Holland." His performances include appearances in such diverse venues as the Amsterdam Concertgebouw, the BIM-Huis and the pop temple of Europe, Paradiso. His music has been performed regularly throughout Europe and elsewhere including Freunde Guter Musik in Berlin, New Music Days in Tallinn, Estonia, and the Finnish 'Time of Music' Festival. Recent commissions have included works for ASKO Ensemble, Orkest de Volharding, Aurelia Saxophone Quartet, Frances-Marie Uitti, and an extended video project with Hotel Pro Forma (Copenhagen) in collaboration with flutist/composer Anne La Berge.

In addition to his composing activities, Dramm performs with the avant-rock group Analecta, whose two CDs are available on X-OR. Other recordings are available on BVHaast, Vanguard Classics, and Composer's Voice. Dramm's music is published by Donemus and Saprophone Music.
