David Fenech is a French composer, guitarist and singer born on 19 July 1969 in Saint-Cloud, Hauts-de-Seine.
David Fenech received a guitar for his tenth birthday and never ceased making music since then. Between 1990 and 1995, he was very active on the mail art network and published tracks on various tape and CD compilations. In 1991, he led the Peu Importe collective in Grenoble. This band played improvised music and punk rock in a spirit close to bands like The Ex or Pere Ubu.
David Fenech released his debut solo CD in 2000 on the Tout L'Univers label (reissued by Felix Kubin on Gagarin Records), and then a duet with Moka. His second album called Polochon Battle was released by inPolysons, a French label.
He also plays improvisation on electric guitar with musicians such as Gino Robair, Tom Cora, Jac Berrocal, Andrea Parkins and has also played duets with musicians like Felix Kubin, Jad Fair, Ergo Phizmiz, Klimperei, James Plotkin (khanate), Shugo Tokumaru, Ramona Cordova, Mr Quark, Toog, Dragibus, Ghédalia Tazartès, etc. He has also worked as a software developer at IRCAM and more recently at L-Acoustics
He has run a micro label Demosaurus that has published 2 cds (Ghédalia Tazartès et Frank Pahl).
In 2009, he began working with Jac Berrocal. This collaboration resulted in a record as a trio with Ghédalia Tazartès (Superdisque, on Sub Rosa) and more recently trios with Jac Berrocal + Vincent Epplay (Antigravity - Blackest Ever Black) or with Jac Berrocal + Jason Willett (Christmas in March - Megaphone / Knock Em Dead)
