Steve Cupani is a music composer for film and television. His passion for music came at an early age as a young musician studying guitar, but years later, turned his focus toward writing music for the screen. He studied music composition, orchestration and theory with Dr. Roman Toi at the Royal Conservatory of Music and holds a Certificate with Honors.
He scored his first feature film in 2001, and soon after, decided to join the Guild of Canadian Film Composers, and in 2002 he participated in the GCFC’s Apprentice/Mentor Program. Since then, Steve has composed music for drama, action-adventure, documentary, romantic-comedy, sci-fi and suspense-thriller. When the opportunity presents itself, Steve enjoys implementing musical instruments from various cultures into his work, and his score for English Butler Masala Chai is an excellent example.
Steve has worked with the Canadian Film Centre, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, and several independent filmmakers from Canada and abroad. Among his scoring projects, he took on the challenge of writing music for the CFL’s 94th Grey Cup in 2006 which introduced players from both teams and was played for a capacity crowd at Canad Inns Stadium in Winnipeg, Manitoba before 44,786 fans.
In 2008, he participated in the Composer / Filmmaker Program hosted by the GCFC and the Canadian Film Centre and scored a film which won a 2009 Golden Sprocket Award and a 2009 Golden Kite Award. He had the pleasure of having one of his pieces from that score selected to be performed and recorded at the Glenn Gould studio.
Steve is a member of the GCFC, SOCAN and IndieAccess.
