Michael Conway Baker

After winning 3 Canadian Academy Awards (GENIES) for film music and an ACTRA Award (GEMINI) for music for a TV series, Michael Conway Baker understands the invaluable contribution of good music to any video/multimedia project.

While he has produced many scores (180 to date as well as 118 concert works) using MIDI gear in his own studio, Michael is best known for his orchestral scores, and has recorded film music with the world’s major orchestras, including the Vancouver Symphony, Toronto Symphony, London (England) Symphony, Sinfonia of London, the Utah Symphony and numerous professional ensembles. His music is known for its memorable themes and rich melodic textures.

Some of his most highly praised music is for films such as JOHN AND THE MISSUS, THE GREY FOX and SAVAGE LAND. Featured prominently at Expo 86 in Vancouver were his FANFARE FOR EXPO 86, which opened the event, and the scores to the films DISCOVERY, for the British Columbia Pavilion, and ISLAND IN SPACE, for the United Nations Pavilion. International listeners have recently heard his 90 minute ice ballet for Dorothy Hamill's Ice Capades "CINDERELLA" on tour and on television and video. Both the CBC in Canada and the BBC in Britain have recorded and broadcast one-hour concerts devoted entirely to music composed by Michael - an extremely rare event in either country for a living composer.

Michael has received the JUNO award for Best Classical Composition on recordings as well as the Order of British Columbia.
