Alex’s fascination with composition began in high school, where they were a member of the Senior Wind Ensemble. Their fascination with music made them an explorer–they’d learn the parts of other sections and soloists and make medleys of their own sheets. Music production added fuel to this fire, a pursuit that began after taking a Music Technology course in college on a whim.
Today, Alex has created music & soundtracks for short films, podcasts, theatrical works, and their fellow musicians. Notable past collaborators include Penelope Scott, Simon Fraser University, and The Future Perfect Project. Plus, in the summer of 2022, they had their first commissioned musical theatre song through Fabulist Theatre’s mosaic musical, Homing In. They were also a member of the 2021 Vancouver International Film Festival Talent Accelerator Program, for musicians learning to create soundtracks for film & visual media.
Currently, Alex uses these skills on a freelance basis. Most recently, they composed the theme music for a series of episodes in Below the Radar, a podcast run by SFU’s Vancity Office of Community Engagement. On top of this, they’re a member of the band Webpage 505, wrapped up a mentorship with Vancouver’s Producers Lounge earlier this year, and currently have a song they wrote and produced playing at The Transgender Expressions Haven, the world’s first digital transgender art gallery. Additionally, they’re a member of the Maestra Music Directory.
