Award-winning composer Meiro Stamm has scored film, television, stage and digital productions for over 20 years. His scores often fuse classical, contemporary and world elements into striking and memorable music.
Notable projects are Super Science Friends which won “Best Soundtrack” at the 2017 Festival Brasil de Cinema Internacional, Franny’s Feet (for which Meiro was nominated for a Gemini Award in 2005 together with co-composer Amin Bhatia), Princess Sparkly Butt & The Hot Dog Kid which won “Outstanding Achievement in Music” at the 2017 New York City Web Fest, and the short film Bread & Kisses the score for which was nominated for a Remi Award at the 2011 WorldFest in Houston, Texas. Meiro was commissioned in 2015 by R.H Thomson and the National Arts Centre Orchestra to compose a piece for choir and orchestra entitled “Song of the Mothers” commemorating the centennial of WWI as part of Thomson’s The World Remembers project.
Meiro has studied and performed on the classical and electric guitar, the Indian tabla drum, and as a member of Gamelan Toronto. Of his varied musical background Stamm says, “I have always been fascinated by similarities in art from different time periods and cultures. It’s amazing to see how different artists, separated by thousands of miles and hundreds of years, often give expression to the same idea; a single concept bringing forth a multitude of outward forms. I want to create music that does the same thing in reverse - takes many forms of outward expression and points to the inspiration within.”
Stamm served on the Board of Directors of the Screen Composers Guild of Canada from 2002 to 2009 and as its Vice-President from 2004 to 2009.
As a dual citizen of Canada and Switzerland, Meiro qualifies as EU talent for international productions.
