Scott wrote his first music for the school play at the age of 7. He continued composing through High School and University, for hand-bell ensemble, choir, orchestra, and band, and upon being hired at Grace Church on-the-Hill, began to write for the choirs there. In 1997 he was commissioned to compose a piece for a combined choir of 200 voices at the Churches on the Hill Choir festival. He has contributed dozens of pieces for theatre groups, dance companies, orchestras, choirs, and films. He is one of the composers invited back to contribute to Aradia Ensemble's 2nd Baroque Idol in 2013.
Above is footage of Scott singing one of his compositions at Koerner Hall as part of the 2012 Nuit Blanche festival. It's an excerpt from a piece called "Over Me, Over Me, Oak Leaves", one of three Poems by Dennis Lee. The footage was captured by Maev Beatty, and Gregory Prest plays piano. To the right is the score.
