David Frank Long's main career endeavors are in the field of film and television music composition. But he loves exploring the world of concert music whenever he can, and is grateful for the opportunity to have his choral music published by Yelton Rhodes Music.

His piece A New December was recently selected for a review in the August 2008 edition of the Choral Journal, the periodical publication of the American Choral Directors Association (ACDA). David's choral music has been performed throughout the United States, Canada and in Europe as well. His chamber work Kavadango! Ah... (For Flute, Viola and Harp) was performed by the Debussy Trio as part of the Sundays Live! program broadcast live on KMZT 105.1 FM in Los Angeles. In 1994 he received an ASCAP Foundation Grant for Young Composers for his work In Pliant Silver Welling (For Flute Choir, Crystal Glasses and Percussion).

David scored the 2007 Emmy nominated A Year On Earth (Discovery Channel), and also composed original music for The Fighting Cholitas (Independent Film Channel) which received an Honorable Mention at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival, and was nominated for "Best Documentary Short" by the International Documentary Association. His music has also been used in Christmas Caper (ABC Family Channel), the reality television show The Rebel Billionaire (FOX), as well as several Old Navy commercial campaigns from 2007-2008.

He was chosen as a participant in the highly regarded ASCAP Film Scoring Workshop and was also selected as an intern with the Society of Composers and Lyricists mentorship program. While doing doctoral studies at UCLA, David was the recipient of the prestigious Henry Mancini Award for the Composition of Music for Motion Pictures and Television Films.

David's musical style is eclectic, incorporating a variety of materials and influences. He enjoys composing music across the spectrum of moods and tones, but admits a fondness for anything "a little dark and quirky." His choral writing is strongly lyrical and expressive, and admittedly somewhat sentimental. David strives to compose music that is attractive and accessible, yet deceptively sophisticated.
