Avatar photo
Scott Ross-Molyneux (b. 1992) is a Canadian harpist, teacher and composer based in Calgary, Alberta. Scott was awarded a Schulich scholarship to study harp performance with Jennifer Swartz and the Frank Mills scholarship to study composition with Chris Harman, Denys Bouliane, and Philipe Leroux at the McGill Schulich School of Music in Montreal, Quebec, where he completed a double major in harp performance and composition. His performing experience range from The Calgary Youth Orchestra, National Youth Orchestra of Canada, McGill Symphony, University of Montreal Opera, Alberta Winds, Red Deer Symphony, Pro Musica Calgary’s Young Artists Development Program, Okanagan Symphony Orchestra, Okanagan Opera and the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra. Music theory is also a passion for Scott. While at McGill University in Montreal, he was recruited by the university to become a theory tutor in his second year of study. He is driven to improve the quality of theory instruction nationally. Following through with that goal, he participated as the teaching assistant in a Theory Pedagogy program ran by Jean Auger at Mount Royal University in 2017. In his compositions, Scott is interested in combining and enhancing the harp’s acoustic potential with the use of electronics. His electronic music is derived entirely from sounds that originate from the harp, which may or may not pass through electronic processes to transform their musical qualities. Scott continues to embrace divided interests between traditional approaches to both composition and a more a-typical approach to sound creation rooted in modernity and including electronics, graphical, and proportional notation.
