Toronto-based percussionist and Dora-nominated composer Greg Harrison is emerging as one of Canada’s finest talents in modern music. His extensive resume spans artists and groups including JUNO/ Polaris Prize winning Jeremy Dutcher, Mear, Taktus Marimba Duo, Cirque du Soleil, Video Games Live, R. Murray Schafer, and Fred Penner. Described as a “percussion & electronics wizard” (Bob Boilen - NPR Music: Tiny Desk Concert), Harrison’s performative and compositional styles merge his classical music background with his passion for electronic music. In recent years, Harrison has been commissioned by Kaeja D'dance, ProArte Danza, Toronto Dance Theatre, Human Body Expression, Architek Percussion, Fifth Wind Quintet, CCDT, Dr. Morris Palter (University of Arizona), Popular Demand Pictures Inc., NB Tourism, and Division 85 Films.
