David Brian Pezzner was born in Tarzana, California in 1975 and currently lives in Seattle, Washington. He is 5 foot 7 inches in height and weighs about 165 lbs. His brother, Bill works at the Port Of Seattle and has four children, two of whom are actually step-children. Bill’s wife owns a local publication and is a skilled bicyclist (even though she has not gone professional.)
When David works in his studio where he makes electronic music, his wife brings him a drink and discusses her day. The door-keeper comes in to give him a telegram sent the previous year from the Eolian Islands.
In 2010 he wrote an album of music which was released by Freerange records. A year later David’s first and only daughter, Eloise Sylvia was born. She was 5 pounds 11 ounces at birth. David spoke only English and cooked meals for his family every day until 2013 when a company called Systematic Recordings contracted him for another album.
Besides writing music for night clubs and headphones, Pezzner composes music for vision and function, and teaches electronic music writing concepts to anyone who will pay him money.
He sleeps exactly like any other man but, as you will no doubt have noticed, he is not an orthodox painter of the old school, but rather a modern artist. A designer.
Bottom Forty: Why do you play music?
Pezzner: Because I can’t stop. I’m addicted to sound. When I find music that I think people should hear, I am pretty relentless at making sure they hear it. I made music my job because I almost feel like it’s my duty. Aside from being my job, I see the work I do almost like a form of social justice, pulling the good stuff out of the massive pile of noise and garbage that is out there in the worlds music library and bringing it to you so that its easier for you to find it.
BF: What do you see as your role in the music world going into the future?
P: I’m just going to do what I do, my art, and display it for people in the best way I know how. My role is to keep trying to find new beats and sounds and keep people thinking while they are dancing.
BF: Favorite label or artist from the past year?
P: Can I just rattle off some names? Keinemusic, &me, Monaberry, Robsoul, Joe, Popcorn, Cheus, Dorian Concept, and Harvey Sutherland. There are so many others but this is just a quick short list.
BF: What are you looking forward to most this year?
P: Some quality time with my family. A good nights sleep. Seeing what the next random place my music will take me.
