Seth Stachowski


The enchanting music heard in Nicholas of Myra is the creation of Seth Stachowski. He expertly blends the sound of ancient instruments with the familiarity of a popular Christmas carol -- composing the perfect theme for the film.

Seth’s accomplishments include his recent work with Cirque du Soleil as both a composer and bandleader. As for his past film and video credits, he worked as Composer for Juma’s Story and the short film Fragile. He has also worked in television, as composer for the TV documentary Phantom Tour: The 13 Most Haunted Places in WNY. His musicianship as a performer can be heard on the soundtrack for Drivers Wanted on the tracks “Whiskey Before Breakfast,” “Nice to be Alive,” and “WallFlowers.” Seth also appears in the Cirque du Soleil video documentary A Thrilling Ride Through Kooza -- a behind-the-scenes look at the critically acclaimed touring show. The video features interviews and anecdotes on the creative process behind the production of a live Cirque du Soleil show.
