Milen Petzelt-Sorace is a Juno award nominated composer from Toronto, Ontario.
Milen's ability to take abstract direction and turn it into a perfectly fitting score is one of a kind. He understands story, and his film scoring reflects that, regardless of whether it's articulating the emotions of characters or hitting all of the right comedic beats. In addition to that, he's able to turn around notes at a rapid pace, and is an efficient and creative collaborator that any director or filmmaker would have an absolute pleasure working with.

Working with Milen on Caravan was almost too easy. He was able to internalize my original ideas and start contributing his own very quickly. It only took a few short emails back and forth to realize exactly what we both wanted. He added a theatrical element to our song that I don't believe we could have come up with on our own. We asked him to push a finale we had written over the top and he did so in a focussed, but tasteful manner. Milen is very easy to work with, and I would (and have) recommended him to other musicians I respect.

Milen is an exceptionally gifted young composer. His natural ability when it comes to implicitly understanding tone and instrumentation is remarkable. He is thoughtful, professional, and creative. I look forward to working with him again in future.

Getting to work with Milen was my single most joyful experience of “Tower of Silence”. He knew what I wanted without my having to tell him anything - he fished the music out of my dreams. Thanks to him, the swords swing harder, the scenery feels grander, the characters are amplified, and the story’s pieces all connect. There would be no film without Milen’s music.
- Erik Flynn Patton, Director of The Tower of Silence
From a music producer’s perspective, Milen is very easy and enjoyable to work with. He’s meticulous with project details and goes the extra mile to achieve perfection with his contributions. Aside from his talents as both a composer and performer, Milen completes his tasks in a timely manner, speaks professionally and is an effective creative communicator.
