Marc Canham

British

Marc’s unique compositional approach and ability to blur the boundaries between organic and electronic sounds have resulted in a prolific output of film and video game soundtracks, establishing himself as one of the UK’s leading gaming composers. 

His recent film work includes the 2019 Netflix Original feature Close (starring Noomi Rapace) which became the second most viewed Netflix film to date after Birdbox, and his critically acclaimed score for cult thriller The Disappearance of Alice Creed, starring Gemma Arteton. He is currently scoring the upcoming US feature I Care A Lot which stars Rosamund Pike and Peter Dinklage. 

Marc's significant gaming credits include InFamous: Second Son, Far Cry 2, Driver: Parallel Lines, Driver 3, The Getaway, Split Second, Reservoir Dogs and Battlefield: Heroes

Throughout his numerous scores and collaborations, Marc has delivered filmic landscapes built on elegant twists of musical genres, crafting a world where acoustic and ‘invented’ sounds co-exist. Canham manages to blur the boundaries between the two approaches of live recording and studio ‘magic’, making organic sounds feel otherworldly, and his electronic approach feel alive and human. His focus is not restricted to the notes on the page, but also captures the details between them, allowing musical spaces to complement the revolving structures that form the framework of his compositions.

He’s collaborated and teamed up with some of the most exciting musical talent around, with his compositions being remixed and re-interpreted by the likes of UNKLEAmon Tobin and Diplo, while also working with artists and composers such as Nathan Johnson, Philip Glass, Iggy Pop and Baaba Maal.
