Alex Eddington
 Biography

Alex Eddington's music has been performed across Canada and internationally by ensembles including the Brantford and Mississauga Symphony Orchestras, Continuum Contemporary Music, Ensemble Mujirushi, the junctQín keyboard collective, Quatuor Bozzini, the students of the Suzuki String School of Guelph, Da Camera Singers, Toronto Chamber Choir, violinist Conrad Chow and soprano Kristin Mueller-Heaslip. From 2009 to 2012, he was Composer-in-Residence of the Scarborough Philharmonic Orchestra. Alex's composition work has received several honours, including a SOCAN award for his monodrama Death to the Butterfly Dictator! He was recently awarded a commission through the Canadian Music Centre's New Music for Young Performers program to compose Watershed for two student violinists.

Alex is also a writer and actor who has toured several of his own original plays on the Canadian Fringe festival circuit, sometimes to rave reviews. His shows seek new intersections of music and theatre - including The Fugue Code, a "musicological comedy-thriller" about hidden codes in the music of J.S. Bach. As the 2008/09 Urjo Kareda Resident Artist at Tarragon Theatre, Alex created and workshopped a physical theatre play about a painting elephant (Emily C.). He has composed music and sound design for theatre and dance productions across Canada. Alex is currently working on Yarn, a solo storytelling show - with live acoustic sound design - about the summer he moved to a remote Scottish island to find himself, and lost his mind instead.

Alex is also a choral singer, conductor, music and drama teacher, arts administrator, and bird enthusiast.
