TORONTO: It’s not every day that a composer gets to hear a score they’ve written being played by a live orchestra due to the coordination, studio space and budgets required. On Saturday, February 5th, 28 classically trained musicians gathered in CBC’s Glenn Gould Studio to record a score that Kohli had written.

“It’s mighty cool to hear an orchestra record something I’ve written. Thanks to the Screen Composers Guild of Canada for making this happen with the Canadian Film Centre and the Glenn Gould School,” Kohli commented; adding “The director, Samuel, had a clear vision of what we needed to do to support the film and it was great to draw upon fellow composers Christian Floisand, Tristan Capacchione, and Darren Fung to get the end result as well as have Josh Tidsbury doing the beautiful surround mix.”

Kohli scored the music for the film called Wild Goose Daddy, directed by filmmaker Samuel Kiehoon Lee, who is based in Seoul and Toronto and who flew in from Korea just ahead of the recording session. “All of our meetings before the actual recording were over Skype since Sam was in Korea while I was here in Canada. Fortunately, I’m used to working with people halfway across the world, so it was all really fun,” noted Kohli, who has produced music for Bollywood films as well as documentaries and art films all shot in India.

Wild Goose Daddy is an action buddy-comedy romp about a middle-aged Korean mobster who has to team up with a young drag queen in order to find his missing daughter in Toronto. The film has a screening in Toronto along with four other films also scored by members of the Screen Composers Guild of Canada.

Punk, hip-hop and Bollywood

Award-winning composer and music producer Vikas Kohli is known for his expertise at fusing together genres as varied as punk, hip-hop and Bollywood pop. He is the first composer to receive the Trailblazer Award from the ReelWorld Film Festival, the first composer to receive a Voice Achievers Award and he also received a MARTY award from the Mississauga Arts Council. Kohli has been profiled on ET Canada, CBC, The Globe & Mail, The Toronto Star, The Hindustan Times, MSN, AOL, Yahoo, and Zee News.

Born in Nepean (Ottawa), Kohli began playing guitar and painting at fine arts school before receiving his Honors Degree in Mathematics & Philosophy from the University of Toronto, his MBA from the Schulich School of Business and his CFA. Kohli now lives in Mississauga, Canada.
