Dave Hollinden has composed extensively for percussion, and his music is widely performed in the US and overseas. He has a unique voice that speaks not only of his training in composition but also of his background in rock music and his affinity for rhythm and number.

He has been the recipient of grants from Artist Trust, the Seattle Arts Commission, the National Foundation for Advancement in the Arts, and the Artist Support Program of Jack Straw Productions. His Bachelors Degree in Composition is from Indiana University, where he studied with Harvey Sollberger and Juan Orrego-Salas. He received his Masters Degree in Composition from the University of Michigan, where he studied with Fred Lerdahl, William Albright and Leslie Bassett.

He has received commissions from the Eclectic Trio and Crescent Duo (chamber quartet), Sole Nero - Tony DiSanza and Jessica Johnson (duets for piano and percussion), Michael Burritt (marimba solo), Nick Petrella (multi-percussion solo), Nachiko Maekana (multi-percussion solo), Central Washington University (percussion octet), Midlothian High School (wind ensemble), and Victoria Memorial High School (percussion octet). His music appears on recordings by the Base Four Percussion Quartet ([one]), Norman Weinberg (Quilt), Sole Nero (Musica per Due), Joseph Gramley (American-De-Construction), the Ethos Percussion Group (Ethos), Michael Burritt (Shadow Chasers), the Eclectic Trio and Crescent Duo (Woodwind Echoes), and Equilibrium/Michael Udow (Border Crossing). The CD Slender Beams, created by Hollinden and percussionist Andrew Spencer, features live and studio recordings of his music. [1]
