(Beginning of production)
I was drawn to compose and to perform music some 30 years ago. Sound effects and mixing were added to the repertoire along the way, as was voice coaching for animation work that included the musical composition of over 100 original songs in multiple languages.
I have more than 250 projects under my belt and new challenges beckon me still. My passion is driven by forces that defy description and explanation. I have often said that music is like math; you don’t create it, you discover it.
I am dyslexic. Yet, I pore over scientific and historical materials that feed my hunger for knowledge. Musical notation is foreign to me. Yet, I mastered the piano as a teenager and I create music that will stir your soul. I’ve heard all the labels: show-off, weirdo, genius. Several years ago, I was mentored by a musicologist from the Sorbonne in Paris. He encouraged me to defy convention and to make my own way. I haven’t looked back.
I have composed music for television, documentary films, advertising, performers, live shows and more. I have been nominated for “Gemini” and “Prix Gémeaux” awards in Canada. I am a proud geek. I keep abreast of audio and visual technologies and I have been known to influence their design. As much as they may inform my art, they exist to serve it; not to define it. “Gesamtkunstwerk” is the German word for “total work of art.” This is what I embrace in most every project I take on.
My world is one where ideas become reality via teamwork and via the gifts that I am privileged to have. These gifts and the creation they bring forth may be unstructured and unbounded, but a deadline is a deadline. I am there for you at every turn. I look forward to hearing from you.
