Eduardo Noya, aka NOIA has been tinkering with an expansive range of sounds from a young age. Drawing on his immediate influences, namely Arvo Pärt and Brian Eno, Noya specializes in unconventional approaches to composition, working mainly with synthesizers to provide textured, layered, and evocative electronic instrumentation.
As a cinematic composer, Noya has twice collaborated with award-winning Québécois filmmaker Xavier Dolan, in the movies “Laurence Anyways” and “Mommy.” Here, Noya brought viewers deep into the characters’ subconscious, tapping into their surrealist inner workings. His work on “Laurence Anyways” earned him a 2013 Canada Screen Awards nomination for Best Original Score.
His most recent work has been on the period drama “Versailles.” Set in King Louis XIV’s high court, Noya’s score provides the perfect complement to the TV series’ intrigue, keeping viewers locked in tension.
Noya has designed soundscapes for animated projections at the King’s Cross Filing Station in London, in addition to the official trailers for the 2013 Animatou international animation film festival. His scores for animator Max Hattler’s work won him awards in the categories of Best Canadian Audio-Visual Composer and Best Soundtrack.
Noya and his band, NOIA, are recording the upcoming album “Maybe Forever” due out 2016
