SUAD BUSHNAQ Born in Jordan to a Syrian mother and a Bosnian-Palestinian father, Suad Bushnaq is a musically multilingual Arab-Canadian film and concert composer whose music has been described as ‘reflective and touching’ (BBC The Arts Hour), and ’rich and accessible’ (Klarafestival, Belgium). She has been hailed by composer Hans Zimmer as “an incredible artist.”
Her music from the film “The Curve” was nominated for a Hollywood Music in Media Award in the World Music category, and won a Silver Medal for Outstanding Achievement in Original Score at the Global Music Awards, and has been described as “beautiful as the sadness of the night and the joy of the daybreak.
Currently, Suad is part of the Slaight Music Residency at the Canadian Film Centre.

NEW ADVENTURES IN LISTENING – Film clips from “On The Waterfront” and “Ryan” are posted on the “Study Materials” page for download. With the sound removed, they can be scored as an exercise, and brough in to “Adventures in Listening” for feedback and analysis. Adventures in Listening is a unique opportunity to get unbiased and honest feedback on your ‘in-progress’ or experimental work from a community of your professional peers. Because it is anonymous, it is a risk-free environment. Whether you are an emerging composer or an experienced one, and whether your work is for concert or screen, I encourage you to take advantage of this invaluable resource.
