INSIYA A. FODA
Composer | Arranger | Musician
Insiya Foda is a concert and film composer based in Toronto, Canada. She began her musical journey as a young girl playing the violin. Since the age of four she has had a passion for music and a yearning to continuously learn more.
Her portfolio includes works written in a range of musical styles; orchestral, percussive, synth and hybrids of styles that blend and cross through musical worlds. Within the filmic world Insiya is expressive and easily adapts her music to what best suits the screen and storyline.
Insiya has a great interest in creating music as a visual expression, where in 2018 her composition Arachne’s Web was performed at the Artists in Momentum: Through Glass Gallery Exhibition — an organization committed to the empowerment of mental health awareness, through artistic expression. With her love for concert and chamber music she continues towards creating meaningful and musical works of art.
Stemming from her enthusiasm for the visual arts, Insiya creates short looped animated drawings with which she showcases her compositions in a collection called, Little Moon Dreams.
Insiya's ultimate goal is to tell stories through her music and connect with people through her creative work. Using an imaginative mind and passionate heart, she aims to create a unique and colourful world for the ears.
Insiya holds a Bachelor of Music degree from the University of Western Ontario and is a former student of the Screen Scoring program at New York University (NYU). Currently she is based in Toronto, Canada and is a soon to be graduate from Sheridans Music Scoring for Screen and Stage program.
