Borden’s compositions are heavily influenced by the repetitive minimalist style of Philip Glass, Steve Reich, and Terry Riley. Borden is also very interested in counterpoint, best demonstrated in his large scale series of works The Continuing Story of Counterpoint, Parts 1-12.
David Borden was commissioned to write the score to the 1973 film The Exorcist by director William Friedkin. However, less than a minute of Borden’s music was actually used in the film (Mike Oldfield’s Tubular Bells was prominently featured on the soundtrack instead.)
Borden participated in the many activities surrounding the 30th anniversary of the founding of Mother Mallard’s Portable Masterpiece Company in 1999, including several live performances and CD reissues on the Cuneiform record label.
He is currently the Director of the Digital Music Program at Cornell University.
