Ari Posner

Ari Posner is a fixture in Canadian film and television, having most recently scored the critically acclaimed TV series Flashpoint, feature film All the Wrong Reasons, and romantic comedy My Awkward Sexual Adventure. The music composer's repertoire spans from long-format work to ads to animated series, and everything in between.

Posner, an accomplished pianist and alumnus of York University's Fine Arts program, has partnered with prominent composers Stacey Hersh, Ian Lefeuvre and Amin Bhatia (with whom he co-wrote the Flashpoint score). He received a 2013 Canadian Screen Award with his longtime friend Bhatia for the best music score in a program or series, as well as earning various Juno, Gemini and Bessie awards and nominations. Alongside Lefeuvre, Posner also co-wrote the theme music to CBC Radio talk show Under the Influence with Terry O'Reilly.

Through his traditional music background and experience collaborating with live musicians and orchestras, Posner has developed a rich compositional skill set. His studio is currently housed at Pirate Toronto, where he regularly composes for radio and television commercials.
