I was honored to work for/with artists such as:

Dave Ellefson (Megadeth), Reto Burrell, Sirens Of Lesbos, The Lugubrious, Tanya Barany, Carpet Town, Coco Kill, TUWAN, The Two Romans, INDIVIDUAL, Akina McKenzie, Immanuel Brockhaus, Open Mind Collective, B'n'Co., What Is Anything?, etc.

 

COMPOSITION | ARRANGEMENT

I had the pleasure to write for and work with different artists and musical ensembles:

Allen Hinds, Gus MacGregor, Tanya Barany, Südwestdeutsche Philharmonie, Klaus Wagenleiter, Götz Alsmann, SWR Big Band, Big Band Connection, LE Big Band, Pop-Chor Konstanz, Musique des Jeunes de Bienne etc. 

 

Feel free to get in touch, if you need an arrangement  for a piece of music or if you'd like a composition specifically written for your purposes. No matter what musical genre or instrumentation (strings, horns, choir etc.).

 

ABOUT

Born on July 12th 1995 in Berne, David Friedli was raised in the countryside near the beautiful city Thun surrounded by the mountains of the Bernese Oberland. He already found his passion for music as a toddler. After a few tries with other instruments, he fell in love with the guitar at the age of 12.

After his grammar school diploma and one year of musical preparation at the Swiss Jazz School (that he won a scholarship prize for at the Langnau Jazz Nights Festival in 2012), he graduated 2017 from his Bachelor and 2019 from his Master in "Composition & Theory" studies at the Bern University Of Arts Of Jazz & Contemporary Music, having had lessons with Frank Sikora, Django Bates, Peter Thomas Gromer, Klaus Wagenleiter, Efrat Alony, Matthieu Michel, Andreas Schaerer, Colin Vallon, Patrice Moret, Dejan Terzic, Immanuel Brockhaus, Klaus König, Tomas Sauter, Stefan Rademacher, Christoph Baumann, Dieter Ammann.

Furthermore David has had masterclasses, workshops and lessons with: John Scofield, Gilad Hekselman, Lage Lund, Julian Lage, Robert Glasper, Mark Turner, Larry Grenadier, Jeff Ballard, Gergo Borlai, Seamus Blake, Peter Bernstein, Becca Stevens, Dave Kikoski, Ari Hoenig, Kenny Werner, Donny McCaslin, Ambrose Akinmusire, Sidsel Endresen, Billy Hart, David Gilmore, Vic Juris, Rudy Royston, Tim Hagans, Nate Smith, Kevin Hays, Thana Alexa, Alex Sipiagin, etc.

 

He plays in different bands of various musical genres („DUS“, "Sirens OF Lesbos" and others). As a bandleader and composer of Modern Jazzrock Trio „Forlorn Elm“, he released his first album „Dreaming Awake“ on Vinyl LP and digital download in 2016. The second album "Milya" by "Forlorn Elm" has been released in spring 2018 on Berlin Jazz Label „QFTF“. In 2020 his first book "Giugiu & Roro" will be published alongside with a children's songbook  of his musical suite "DUS - Giugiu & Roro". 

He works as a session musician, arranger, composer, songwriter in diverse musical genres and teaches guitar, theory, composition and arrangement.
