Marko Koumoulas is a Greek-Canadian award-winning composer from Brampton, Ontario. Recently completing his Master of Arts in Music Composition, Marko is the creator of the world’s first didgeridoo notation lexicon. Marko started a media music company, ScoreSound, in the spring of 2013. They specialize in writing and recording music for films, TV, and games. Marko’s introduction to Chinese music was in 2014, when he was one of five composers to be selected in a nation-wide call for scores for the Dim Sum Ensemble, in Toronto, Ontario. His original composition, “Reincarnation Suite”, premiered in November 2014, and was later performed in 2018 in both Vancouver, British Columbia and Toronto, Ontario by the Toronto Chinese Orchestra. In the summer of 2018, Marko’s piece “Breath” was premiered in Taipei, Taiwan by the Toronto Chinese Orchestra. Marko’s work with the Toronto Chinese Orchestra ultimately led him to joining as a member, where he plays the zhongruan. In addition to zhongruan and didgeridoo, Marko specializes in playing and teaching guitar, bass, theory and history. Marko is currently a PhD student at York University, where he is continuing his research on Australian Aboriginal didgeridoo music.
