Erica Procunier is a Canadian composer for film and other media. Her credits include scores for film, television, theatre, advertisement and interactive productions. She was commissioned by the Toronto Symphony Orchestra and Toronto International Film Festival to compose the score for DAM! The Story of Kit the Beaver, a live film-concert for the celebration of Canada’s 150th birthday. The film premiered live in concert with the TSO and toured across Canada to be performed by the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra, the Kingston Symphony Orchestra and the Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony Orchestra.

Erica recently scored season 1 of Apple TV plus’s Emmy winning show Ghostwriter. For the CBC she has scored the rowdy comedy series Little Dog, and the children’s series Detention Adventure. Erica has worked on critically acclaimed films such as Pat Mills’ hit misfit comedy Don’t Talk to Irene starring Geena Davis and Thyrone Tommy’s anxiety-ridden drama Mariner, both official selections at the Toronto International Film Festival. Her composition, "Precipice", was the centrepiece of Seneca College's Nuit Blanche exhibition in Toronto, which included artwork by over 60 students and faculty all inspired by the same piece of music.


Erica was selected to attend Berlinale Talents 2019 and is an alumna composer of the Canadian Film Centre’s Slaight Family Music Lab. She currently teaches film scoring at Humber College. She is on the board of directors for the Screen Composers Guild of Canada and holds a Masters of Music Composition from Western University.

The music Showcases are produced cinematic works based on an original score or song created by our 2013 Slaight Music Residents. Filmed in a single day, the Showcase pieces celebrate the distinct talent of our songwriters and composers and illustrate how music brings life to the moving image.
