The Company

 

Socan Gala crop 2While attending Dalhousie University, Blain played in the bands The Spawning Grunions and Big Ethel.  Upon graduation, he started writing small pieces of music for his bandmate, friend and director, Mike Clattenburg;  it was this opportunity that allowed Blain to turn his passion for music into a career.  It has been over 20 years since Blain started writing music for film and television.   From CBC kids,  Poko, to the wildly successful Trailer Park Boys, Blain has showcased his versatility and flexibility in combining fresh ideas with time honoured standards.  BMP remains a small studio so that when you hear the score, you are hearing Blain;  nothing is outsourced.

BMP is in the process of creating a production music library for those who need a piece of music “yesterday”.  BMP is also developing some programming of our own.  Ruby the Littlest Dog, Trent the Frog and Get it Right. 

 

 Blain has just won the  2013  SOCAN  Domestic Animated Television Series Award for CBC’s Animal Mechanicals.  Ceremony to be held June 2014, Roy Thompson Hall.
