Daniel Scott is an award winning Canadian composer for film and television. Born and raised in Montreal, his father was a composer and his mother a classically trained pianist. From the age of five through his teens, he often spent his time in the recording studio working as a singer and actor for radio and television commercials.
Following his formal training in classical guitar and jazz vocals, his great sensibility and his interest for the diversity of musical atmospheres lead him towards composition. His meeting with film scoring was almost inevitable.
Whether scoring with the complex colors of a full orchestra, the contemporary sounds of electronic instruments or the intimate simplicity of a human voice, Daniel's perceptive and versatile approach to film scoring is always deeply connected to emotion and storytelling.
With extensive experience in live action as well as animation, he has composed and produced over the past twenty years, hundreds of hours of music for a multitude of films, television series, documentaries and video games.
Daniel Scott is a five-time recipient of SOCAN’s (Society of Composers, Authors and Music Publishers of Canada) National/International Award for the “most performed Quebec composer for film and television”. He has also been nominated seven times for the Gémeaux and Gemini Canadian television awards.
