Independent Film Composer, Musician, and engineer

Daniel Brophy is a composer of orchestral, chamber, and solo concert works, as well as a performer of extreme metal and noise. In the realm of music for media, he has written, performed and recorded music for short films and animations, often collaborating with the director. For these scores he utilizes a combination of live recording techniques, scoring for ensembles, and MIDI implementation.

He has also written and arranged orchestral introductions for the local Toronto black metal group by the name of Strings of Ares, and co-wrote a television commercial for a ski resort by the name of Snow Valley in Edmonton.

Much of his work revolves around the combination of urban and academic musics, and the development of instruments that react to movement and gesture giving his music a distinct personality. He has performed internationally with these instruments in Lausanne (Switzerland), Ann Arbour, Vancouver, Toronto, and most currently as a headliner for Calgary’s Soundasaurus festival. He is a recipient of the 2013 Toronto Harp Society and 2012 KW Chamber Orchestra composition prizes, a SSHRC research grant, University of Alberta’s President’s Award of Distinction, and a Queen Elizabeth II Graduate Scholarship. He is currently a Doctoral Candidate at the University of Alberta and a member of the performance outfits: 30 immolated; 16 returned, The Old Granny and Terry Cloth, MUGBAIT, and the Toronto collective The Toy Piano Composers.

He can be contacted directly at and his works can be listened to on my soundcloud account:

Coming Through the Rye

Just want to thank you for your materials and help over the past year. I could not have raised the $1.5 million or made this film without the materials you provided. The bargain of my career!

Finished my deck on Friday. Got it into a few potential investor’s hands over the weekend, and by Monday had 3 out of the 10 available memberships spoken for at $160K each. The revenue projections and film comparable services by NASH, along with the business plan and pitch deck templates were instrumental in presenting the project in such a way that financially minded potential investors could understand the movie business, the market and how my project could possibly give them a substantial ROI.

Melissa was amazing throughout the entire process. Always there to answer any questions. Couldn’t have done it without you guys. Can’t thank you enough. Best money I’ve ever spent.
