Nicholas Scarim

Nicholas Scarim was born and raised in Chicago where he later attended the Chicago Musical College of Roosevelt University. He has lived in New York City for over 30 years. "After graduating from the conservatory, I began scoring documentary films in New York, and also wrote theme music for several top-selling computer games, including Spy vs Spy which, to my chagrin, is ALL over the internet these days: as remixes, recreations, jams... it's even on an acapella CD by a Swedish singing group. At the same time, I have always been a serious composer, having written several operas, symphonies, ballets, a Mass and many chamber works. My most-performed orchestral work is a piece commissioned by Carnegie Hall called "A Simple Melody," which for ten years was learned by school kids all across the US and Canada and enabled them to attend a performance of their regional symphony orchestra and play or sing along with "A Simple Melody."
