davidly plays something called a Handsonic, which is similar to an electronic hand-drum/synthetic keyboard, but with rubber pads in lieu of keys. He used to play in a band called MiLkBabY in Chicago, where his background was in theatre as both an actor and musician. He often recounts the honor of being able to study with director Del Close in a shameless attempt to connect his own history with that of a legend.

His credits as an actor include the starring role in Vincent Bruckert's "Here's Buford" directed by Ann Filmer. He was a member of the National Pastime Theater company in Chicago, scoring plays live and dead, with and without his primary collaborator Barry Bennett, who, along with davidly, is the only Handsonic player left in the world.

davidly still intermittently makes an appearance with MiLkbabY's Tracee Westmoreland in the Euro-duo eBabY and is not completely incapable of the occasional brush with "law and order".

Based in Berlin, he has often played with the Ohmnoise-led collective, CD Kreisverband Friedrichshain. Currently his endeavors involve the jazz-trash trio Froggy Burger, originally the brainchild of French bassist extraordinaire, Nico Petitdan aka Kobah.

As a current member of the artist-collective Salon Bruit, davidly has curated regular events and occasionally hosted various radio projects, including Radio Einheit on Pi-Radio.  Along with Kate Donovan, he co-hosted the radio show "Kate Donovan & davidly Play with Words & Music" for five years on 88vier as part of a project with CoLaboRadio.

He sometimes rants about culture and politics in his e-diary and collaborates with animators, photographers, and video artists. 'Devastations Kino' with ethnologist/photographer Robert Lorenz, described by Sorbian-German author and poet Kito Lorenc as "gruseligÒ, has been performed from Wuischke to Schwerte. The short-animation "Einheit oder Vielfalt" by davidly and iconic artist and film animator Michael Schmacke - based on davidly's poem "zum nicht verbindlichen BŸrgerentscheid" - took second prize at the Megaspree Film Festival 2009.
