Originally an orchestral musician, Steve studied composition and conducting with Canada’s music elite: John Burge, Marjan Mozetich and Kristi Allik. In 1995, he received a certificate of specialization from the world renowned 'Scoring for Motion Pictures and Television' program at the University of Southern California. The opportunity to study in L.A. with such composers as Elmer Bernstein, Jerry Goldsmith and Christopher Young, was invaluable and integral to his development as a serious composer for film and television. He also gained a great deal of experience working as a score coordinator with Christopher Young on such films as 'Unforgettable' (MGM), 'Head Above Water' (New Line Cinema), and 'Copycat' (Warner Bros.).
Mr. London now lives and works in both Los Angeles and Toronto. He records regularly with European orchestras as a composer for the Munich-based SONOTON music library and has also written music for many feature films including: 'That Beautiful Somewhere' starring Roy Dupuis and Jane MacGregor, 'Seduced By A Thief', starring Sean Young and Ron Perlman, and 'Shallow Ground' (Universal).
Steve is also particularly well known for his animation scoring. Over the past five years he has lead-composed on three major animated series and received Gemini nominations for two of them. Last year, Steve scored the CBC historical drama “John A. Macdonald: Rivals", which will premiere in 2011. He also scored the international Feature film, “The Boss” and has recently finished the TV Movie (pilot) “Befriend and Betray” for CanWest Global.
