The Buffy Connection

Truly a man about town (and media!), George appeared on several episodes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. He appeared on three episodes, and there was even a character based around several of his songs. George also has songs on Buffy spinoff: Angel.

George then recorded, co-wrote and produced an album called Music for Elevators with Buffy actor Anthony Stewart Head. While it wasn’t a Buffy album, several Buffy folks got involved -- including the creator Joss Whedon, who wrote a song specifically for the record. Despite being released on a small indie label, it sold over 20,000 copies and continues to get reviewed and sought out. A cult favourite!

And on Angel:

Beijing Olympics

George also wrote music that was for the 2008 Beijing Olympics. The 14-minute piece was performed by the Beijing Modern Dance Company and designed by choreographed by Poetic Kinetics, who are a large-scale art installations and experiential design group.

Collaborations across the board

George has worked extensively with brilliant musicians. You'll want to hear Anna, featuring Angela McCluskey, the vocalist for TelepopMusik, Alain Whyte, formerly of Morrissey, and co-writer James Fearnley, of The Pogues.

About The Passion of Joan of Arc

Carl Dreyer's 1928 classic remains one of the 20th century's most revered formal film experiments. Framing the emotional journey of history and cinema's oft-referenced feminist icon (played unforgettably by Maria Falconetti), we see Joan's final moments in visceral close-up.

Here, George lends the film a new, ethereal score and performs it live in Canada for the first time, along with eight Toronto strings and vocal musicians, in what promises to be a haunting and special night of film and music.

When performed across the US, George's score is always greatly received!
