David Revill is a British writer, composer and producer

Writer, composer and producer David Revill presents guest lectures and, as an Avid Certified Instructor, Pro Tools and S6 training programmes. He also publishes on musical analysis, multimedia and intermedia — he wrote the authorised biography of John Cage — and is now working again in sociological analysis and social activism.

David Revill has worked on compositional projects throughout Europe and North America, and has held compositional residencies in Austria, France, Germany and the United States. He is in frequent demand as a guest speaker, both for guest lectures and workshops, on composition, technology and the sociology and philosophy of music and multimedia.

Revill wrote the authorised biography of John Cage, The Roaring Silence, and has contributed to many other publications. Having been equally active in sociology and philosophy earlier in his career, as well as committed to social activism and political advocacy, he recently returned to these fields and is currently working on a book on online privacy.

Besides his work as composer and author, Revill has a parallel career in audio production — editing and mixing especially, with a particular emphasis on surround sound production and film and TV post. David Revill is an Avid Certified Instructor for Pro Tools and the S6 worksurface, and presents workshops and guest lectures concerning Pro Tools, the S6 — and engineering and production in general — worldwide for individuals, companies, colleges and universities.
