Damien Simon is an internationally known music composer for Ballet/Contemporary Dance Companies, TV/Film, Orchestras and Ensembles around the world. Damien has written dozens of scores for multiple genres and sizes of groups, depending on the goals of the project.
“Mr. Simon is a dynamic composer who uses the orchestra in creative and unusual ways. His music is very accessible but not pandering. In terms of working with a composer, he is a conductor’s dream: A collaborative personality, fun-loving and and open to ideas and input from other musicians.”
— Todd Craven - Conductor
“This book has everything you need to begin and continue a successful collaboration with a composer. I have worked with Damien, as well as other composers, and know the importance of the details. “The Collaboration”, lays them all out for you in a comprehensible and useful way!”
