Edward Elgar

Who Are We?

We are what folks in the advertising industry call a music house. In reality we are much more than that. We are sound designers who translate concepts into gut feelings, composers who write songs and scores that move hearts and minds and directors who draw pitch perfect performances from one of the world’s deepest pools of actors, singers and musicians.

We are also tech geeks who apply all of this artful knowledge to interactive media in surprising ways. And we do it all in a beautiful facility that houses three studios in the heart of Downtown Toronto. It is perhaps the most diverse city in the world and we think it’s unbeatable. You can hear our work on Radio, Television, Film and Online all over the world.

Cat Calinescu

Music Director

Some people said that men would never walk on the moon, some poo poo’d the blue prints for the great pyramids, some said that the “internet” was only for losers and the military.  Cat wouldn’t have been one of those people.  He spends his days doggedly figuring out how to make things work, instead of shooting ideas down before they’ve had a chance to fly.

A talented composer, producer, multi instrumentalist and rock & roll front man, Cat has created countless original tracks for the most prestigious of advertising clients.  He is also widely recognized as one of this country’s finest music supervisors having scouted, catalogued and managed music rights for over 4,000 independent artists to create the licensing mecca known as Hook Music.  He’s connected to everyone who matters, his finger is crazy glued onto the pulse point of popular culture, and he’s got this superhuman ability to dive into today’s ocean of musical choices and surface holding the 3 best tracks for your project.  If you know what you want, he’ll make it happen; if you haven’t got a clue, just sit back relax and listen to the 8 track…you’re in very good hands.
