David Mendoza (b. 1979) writes various styles of contemporary music. His works juxtapose the traditional with the contemporary, the ancient with the avant-garde, and the accessible with the abstract. Sound sources often include silences, electronic sounds, non-western instruments, and improvisation to produce something that has been described as ethereal and evocative. Since 2007, his works have been performed at festivals and conferences around the country including SEAMUS, NYCEMF, and SCI local, regional and national conferences. Recent achievements include performing his work at the Teatro Colón in Buenos Aires, Argentina, the premiere of his orchestral work Awakening by the Cleveland Orchestra, and winning his third ASCAP Plus award. He has taught as an adjunct professor at Florida International University, and is currently a Doctoral student at the University of Miami. David is based in downtown Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
