Schaun Tozer
Composer


Schaun Tozer studied music at the Guildhall College of Music, the University of Sussex, and at the University of California (San Diego). In London during the 1980's, Schaun composed and performed for film, television, and contemporary dance including The Lost Jockey, Steve Reich, Mark Lockett, the London Contemporary Dance Theatre Company, Second Stride Dance Company, Martin Riches and the Kunstlerhaus Bethanien (Berlin), Dreamtiger Ensemble, the London Youth Dance Theatre Company, and the Leicestershire Schools Symphony Orchestra. Between 1982 and 1986, Schaun was Composer-in-Residence for the London Borough of Tower Hamlets. He co-founded the band 'Man Jumping,' which toured extensively throughout Europe, performing in such diverse venues as the Ronnie Scotts Jazz Club, Sadler's Wells, the Cologne Opera House, and the London Africa Centre. On signing an extensive recording contract with Editions EG (Virgin), home to Brian Eno, Roxy Music, and Killing Joke, things went ...sideways. Deciding to pursue a life long passion for film, Schaun legged it to Vancouver in 1990. He has enjoyed working on a variety of film and television projects which include Da Vinci's Inquest, Terminal City, The Handler, The Life, The Immortal, My Father's Angel, Bad Money, Kitchen Party, and Hard Core Logo.
