David Modica Writings
David Modica's haunting music on acoustic and electric guitar touches the listener's heart with the anticipation and ultimate fulfillment of the journey home. His delicate melodies, continually reinventing themselves, and the rich colors he gently coaxes from his instrument, reflect his experience both as a musician and as an individual who has spent the major portion of his life seeking inner understanding.
David's style is all his own, developed over many years as a performer and composer. His work involves various techniques including fingerstyle, flat-picking, jazz chording, spontaneous improvisation, classical, rock, blues, and folk. David pulls these various elements together in a unique mix that creates a timeless space in sound.
David music has been used in films by independent film director Ray Nomoto Robison, including Sixes and the One-Eyed King, which won the Audience Choice Award at festivals in Miami and Louisville as well as the Best Feature Award at the Rogue Independent Film Festival in Oregon. David has also composed many commercial jingles in use in Europe, Asia, and North America.
From 2007 to 2019, with eleven albums released to date and songs reaching the top 20 on iTunes New Age charts, David's musical style is perpetually evolving from acoustic guitar to electric guitar, native flute, keyboards, percussion and more as David's compositions continue to push the limits on style, sound, and originality. His albums are lyrical, complex, and invite the listener to join in the exploration of all the beauty to be found within and without one's own being.
While David mainly performs locally in his home area of southern Oregon, he recently finished his first book. "Signposts Along The Path To Awakening" is available now. Being a student of spiritual studies for 35 years he has recently found himself writing what he would call "pointings." Discoveries that have centered him on his life's path that point to the direction of living from the source and consciousness of Love.
