David Torn (born 1953 in Amityville, New York) is a guitarist and composer known for electronics and performance techniques that have a highly atmospheric or textural quality. He is particularly well known among guitarists for his use of looping effects. Torn rose to prominence as a member of Jan Garbarek's quartet in the mid-1980's. He has recorded six albums as a leader for the ECM, Windham Hill, CMP, and 75 Ark record labels. He has also recorded a series of CD-ROMs with looping and other ambient music material that can be used as samples by other artists.
