Hi, I'm Marius.
I Write Music

Sometimes it's for interactive projects, other times it's for motion pictures. It's always for the love of the craft, and it always comes from the heart.


Stay a while, and listen...

Maybe a Time of Miracles

Written to celebrate the beautiful and forward-thinking gaming experience that is Superbrothers Sword & Sworcery, this arrangement weaves together 7 of the pieces from the soundtrack and is my love letter to the folks who reminded us of why gaming is the most exciting medium out there.

How Can I Help You?

Media Scoring

The beauty of scoring for screen projects is the challenge of not merely supporting, but enriching the experience of playing them with music that offers something worth listening to. I make music, not wallpaper.

Sound Design

There’s more to the audio landscape than music though. Everything from the ambience to the interface sounds contributes to the overall design, and nothing ensures seamless audio like having an expert handle both.

At Your Service

My job isn't only to make audio for you. It's to share the excitement and enthusiasm, and offer you the best creative collaboration possible. Quality, affordability, or timeliness? You can have all three.

Marius Masalar
Composer

The Studio

Marius Masalar is an explorer of new media opportunities, working primarily as a composer for video games, films, and advertising. He travels frequently, plays games, loves life, and laughs often. Having escaped from academia bearing two degrees, from Ryerson University and Berklee College of Music, Marius is now happily living his dream.


Marius lives in the beautiful heart of Toronto. While the studio runs mainly on Macs, Marius is a notorious gadget freak, familiar with most operating systems and gadgets, and enjoys surfing at the cutting edge of technology, both musical and otherwise. Writing primarily in Logic Pro, he is also a fan of Ableton Live and Reason, turning to each for specialized cases.


When he isn't hiding in the music cave making noise, you can find Marius wandering the forest, learning something new, or enjoying the company of friends.

Have Questions?

Every project is unique, and these are by no means absolute figures. There are many factors that go into calculating a rate that’s fair to both parties (yes, I want it to be fair for you as well), so the numbers often fluctuate on a project-to-project basis.


I’m flexible, because I love what I do and my goal is to produce the best possible score for a project. Use these figures to help you get a sense of the possible baseline, but don't hesitate to get in touch for a quote that's specific to your needs!

Let's Talk

You can expect quick responses, honesty, and the same enthusiasm and humour you’d get if we met for coffee. So feel free to drop me a line with whatever is on your mind.


And if we’re ever in the same town, we should have that coffee. My treat.
