David B. Doty is a composer and theorist with a focus on just intonation, a co-founder of the Just Intonation Network and author of The Just Intonation Primer. He began building instruments and composing in 1970, inspired, in part, by the work of the late Harry Partch. He cofounded the San Francisco-based experimental music ensemble Other Music (1975-1983) and helped to design and build the group's justly tuned American gamelan. Since 1984, Doty has composed for MIDI instruments; a selection of his works for this medium are featured on his 1998 CD Uncommon Practice.
