David Ogborn – Biography

David Ogborn’s work is performed across Canada, the United States and Europe by a diverse and expanding group of virtuoso musicians and ensembles, including the Manitoba Chamber Orchestra, the Winnipeg Jazz Orchestra, New Adventures in Sound Art, and Tapestry New Opera.  His live electronic music for Fritz Lang’s silent film Metropolis was a special event at the Esprit Orchestra’s 2007 New Wave festival, and 2008’s Opera On The Rocks (created with librettists Leanna Brodie, Dave Carley, Lisa Codrington and Krista Dalby) was a smash hit at the Toronto Fringe Festival, sold out 11 of 13 Toronto shows, received 4 Ns (stars) from Now magazine, and was included among the Toronto Star’s 2008 list of “boffo opera”. Ogborn teaches audio and interaction technologies at McMaster University (Hamilton) in the Department of Communication Studies and Multimedia (in the undergraduate program in Multimedia and the graduate program in Communication and New Media).  He is the president of the Canadian Electroacoustic Community (CEC), an Associate of the Canadian Music Centre, and a founding member of the angelusnovus.net (Toronto) and holophon.ca(Regina) audio collectives.
