Cristobal Tapia de Veer
TV series lovers in Québec, and all over the world, have gobbled up BBC America’s Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency, Série noire (SRC), and the British series National Treasure and Utopia – all of which were brilliantly scored by SOCAN member Cristobal Tapia de Veer. He’s a singular composer who doesn’t play by the rules, and the first screen composer to ever win the SOCAN International Award during the 2017 Gala in Montréal. He’s also won three other international awards for his work: the FIPA d’Or and BAFTA Award for Best Original Score for National Treasure, and the Best Original Score Award at the Festival de Film Gérardmer, in France, for The Girl with all the Gifts. His phone has rung off the hook since then.
