About Nick Elliott
Nick Elliott graduated from Université de Moncton with a Bachelor's in Music (Concentration in Composition under Dr. Richard Gibson) in 2019, where he also studied with the renowned Canadian pianist Roger Lord. Nick has always been interested in music and composition and started playing piano at nine years old.
Nick's music is strongly influenced by middle to late Romantic, impressionistic, and early to late 20th-century music. His work is also inspired by film and video game scores. Having a diverse interest in different time periods and genres helps guide his compositions, encouraging him to think outside the box regarding perspective and inventiveness.
His music is also strongly influenced by nature. Having grown up in rural New Brunswick, Nick gained an appreciation for the simple, uncomplicated things in life and has developed a deep appreciation for nature and the gift that is music and being able to share it with others.
Through a grant from Arts NB, Nick wrote a tone poem for a symphony orchestra. He has composed music for a string quartet, a string trio, and a flute, violin, and vibraphone trio. He has also written pieces for solo guitar, solo cello, solo vibraphone, marimba, and solo piano.
Nick has also composed music for four short films, some of which have been spotlighted at film festivals. Nicks' scores have been applauded regionally, at the ShediAcadie Film Festival and Silver Wave Festival, and internationally at the Hague Film Festival, Prisma (Rome Independent Film Awards), Lift Off Sessions (Pinewood Studios), and the Sheffield Global Cinema Festival.
