David A. Jones (b. 1990) is a Houston-based composer and horn player from Olympia, Washington. He is currently in the midst of his doctoral studies in composition at Rice University, and holds degrees from Brigham Young University and Brigham Young University-Idaho. Jones’s style is focused on the elaboration of musical and extramusical gestures and ideas, and many of his works explore the dynamic relationship between composer and performer through the use of aleatoric and improvisatory techniques. His music has been performed by numerous ensembles, including the Indianapolis Chamber Orchestra, the BYU Chamber Orchestra, Ensemble Hexnut, and the Nautilus Brass Quintet.
