About Peter

Peter Chapman (AKA Coins, AKA Peter Project) is a seasoned film and television composer with a passion for innovative projects, recently completing award winning scores for the hit comedy Workin’ Moms and sci-fi cult hit Wynonna Earp. In addition to his Workin Moms win for best comedy series, he recently earned no less than four additional Canadian Screen Music Award nominations for his work on comedy series The Lake, children's cartoon reboot The Happy House of Frightenstein, as well as lifestyle cooking shows, Mary Makes it Easy and Cross Country Cake off.

Chapman’s work has appeared on Sesame Street segments around the world and Disney XD’s gaming show, In My Parent’s Garage. Additionally, Chapman’s scoring work can be heard uplifting unscripted favorites such as Bryan Inc, Disaster DIY, Bryan’s All In and Renovation Island, the latter of which earned him an ASCAP award.


His other credits include seven seasons of the HGTV hit show Leave it to Bryan, which earned him a SOCAN award, period drama Bomb Girls, Durham County, the opening theme to The Good Stuff with Mary Burg. He also composed for the films, Warigami, Synthesize, TSN’s award winning Engraved on a Nation: On The Line, and Riot Girls, which garnered him two Canadian Screen Award Nominations. His score for CBC’s The Communists Daughter won best music at Spain’s Cinema Jove Festival.

In the video game world, Chapman has also been an in-demand collaborator. Most impressively, his score for The Castle Game was nominated for “Best Original Music” at the Canadian Videogame Awards.


Other video game credits include Guacamelee 1 & 2, Sound Shapes (for which he shared music credits with Beck and Deadmau5), as well as Modnation Racers, Little Big Planet Karting, Russian Subway Dogs and the retro kitsch sci-fi game About a Blob. Outside of film, television and video games, his music has been featured in ads for Aeropostale, M&Ms, Dodge, Petro Canada, Clorox, Saturn, Volkswagen, Tim Hortons, Levis, and RBC.

In 2014, Chapman quietly released “Daft Science” under his pseudonym Coins. The album was a free record of Beastie Boys remixes, for which only Daft Punk samples were used in the production.


After flying under the radar for 2 years, the album went unexpectedly viral in November of 2016 racking up over 20k downloads in a few days and racking up millions of streams through Bandcamp and Soundcloud.


Media attention for the album included mentions from Esquire, Maxim, People Magazine and Factmag while Billboard listed it next to Major Lazer and Fatboy Slim as one of the best Beastie Boys remixes of all time. 

Chapman’s production skills have led him to work with some of Canada’s most exciting artists including Rich Aucoin, The Darcys, Wordburglar and more recently Tom Green. In October 2010, he took first place in Toronto’s first live Hip-Hop production battle Sound Battle Royale in which he beat out 32 of the city’s best Hip-Hop producers. 

Chapman has one of the most impressive portfolios of any Canadian composer his age, starting from age 19 when he licensed several short pieces to hit consumer TV show Street Cents.


Chapman spends most of his time in his new studio surrounded by vintage synthesizers, guitars and samplers, which he combines with modern recording technology and production techniques to form his signature sound. Even when not working to a deadline, he can still be found in his composing chair, putting together tracks for his electronic acts Peter Project and Coins.
