Two Canadian Composers, Heather Schmidt and, Nicole Lizée have used video to help express their music.

Heather is first and foremost a composer and pianist. There are romantic qualities to her music, which lends itself well to film narrative. Incidentally, in addition to being a composer of concert music, she has done some extensive work as a film composer.
