David Donaldson


David Donaldson is one third of Plan 9, a musical collective whose CV of soundtracks includes short films, 20+ features, and over 130 hours of television. Donaldson and colleagues Janet Roddick and Steve Roche all played in celebrated band Six Volts. Since then they have won multiple soundtrack awards, including for films Predicament and Perfect Strangers.  Donaldson also plays in Thrashing Marlin and The Labcoats.

I think coming from a more experimental and sound oriented background has served me well as a soundtrack composer. The lines between music and sound design can be quite blurred and that area of scoring suits my approach to music. David Donaldson
