Ashley Gernitz-Bennett is a composer and sound designer based in Toronto, Canada. She holds a bachelor's of Music Composition from McGill University, where she studied under the guidance of composers Brian Cherney and Melissa Hui. 

It was during this time that she began delving into Montreal's film and video game industries, collaborating on projects with Concordia University Television and Pixelles. After relocating to Toronto she worked as the composer and sound designer for Zizzle Inventions (2019), an educational app designed to introduce children to various STEM concepts. 


Her credits include a number of independent gaming titles as well as in short film and small chamber works. In collaborating with game developers, directors, performers and production teams, she helps teams realize their vision through inventive compositions and evocative soundscapes. Meaningful discourse and an insatiable curiosity are the foundations to her work approach.


Ashley draws inspiration from a range of genres, including classical, minimalism, jazz, and sounds of the natural/industrial world.
