David Birchall – Acoustic Guitar
I am a musician living in Manchester. I play the guitar. I also like playing objects, making things and drawing. In recent times I’ve made sounds solo and with Chastity Potatoe, Desmadrados Soldados de Ventura, Levenshulme Bicycle Orchestra, Kalbakken, Andrew Cheetham, Sam Andreae, Rogier Smal, Olie Brice, Toby Delius, Mark Sanders, Richard Scott, Philip Marks, Rhys Chatham and many other wonderful musicians.
Music I have made has been broadcast on BBC1, BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio 6 Music and Resonance FM. I have also worked with dancers, performers, filmmakers and visual artists in The Lowry Theatre, Salford, The Greenroom, Manchester, Castlefield Gallery, Manchester, Whitworth Gallery and the Arnolfini, Bristol. I teach the guitar and have run sound art/improvising/instrument building workshops for various organisations including Z Arts, Bury Library Service, Unity House, Manchester NHS, Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival and the Tour De France. “David Birchall play(s) guitar in a refreshingly un-guitar-like way” Dyverse Music. “A psychedelic maelstrom that threatens to melt your walls” Mojo
