Isaac Mailach is passionate about storytelling through music, which can be seen in both his music compositions and his cello performances. He recently received his Master of Music in Screen Scoring from the University of Southern California, and earned his Bachelor of Music in Composition and Cello Performance from Wilfrid Laurier University. Some of Isaac's mentors include composers Garry Schyman and Linda Catlin Smith, and cellists Katie Schlaikjer and Paul Pulford. Isaac aspires to compose music for all types of visual media, whether that be in the realms of film, television, or video games, but is particularly passionate about composing for the drama, fantasy, and science fiction genres.

My name is Isaac Mailach, and I am a self-proclaimed nerd.

I love learning about pretty much anything and everything, from baking to astrophysics. I started playing the cello when I was 3, and I knew I wanted to compose music for visual media when I was 17. Since then, not much has changed, except that I'm a little better at both those things. I would describe my composition style as grounded in experimental post-modern abstract-expressionist minimalism (with a tinge of absurdism).

In my spare time, I enjoy going on hikes in beautiful Canadian forests (yes, I’ll admit I’m from Canada), reading a book by J.R.R. Tolkien, and watching Adventure Time on loop. If you enjoy any of these three things, we are bound to get along.
