Daria Novo is a composer, arranger, and orchestrator working mainly in film and animation, as well as video games and musical theater. Having a strong classical music background and deep knowledge of music technology, Novo often fuses orchestral music with sound design in her work.

Among her works is a highly anticipated work for San Francisco Ballet’s Choreographer in Residence Yuri Possokhov “… Two united in a single soul”, original music and sound design for mobile games “Diner Dash Adventures” and “Cooking Dash”, and so on.

Parallel to her active composer career, Novo has worked as a lead orchestrator with Sonya Belousova and Giona Ostinelli (“The Witcher” by Netflix, NBC drama “The thing about Pam”, and more). She orchestrated a headliner of the 2021 Krakow Film Music Festival – The Witcher Suite featuring Belousova on piano performing with a symphony orchestra and choir to a cheering sold-out crowd, followed by the Suite’s official release via Sony Music.

As a frequent collaborator with Meta Music Initiative and Meta sound design team, Daria Novo orchestrated and conducted a score for Mescaform Hill: The Missing Five – a VR animated graphic novel created for the Oculus TV platform by Edward Madojemu with the music of Dren McDonald.

Return to Monkey Island is coming from Ron Gilbert’s Terrible Toybox, in collaboration with Devolver Digital and Lucasfilm Games where Dara worked as orchestrator for the 2022 AAA game with music from Peter McConnell, Clint Bajakian, and Michael Land.

Novo founded her company, NovoMusic, to passionately create a community of female audio professionals where they can establish themselves in the field of audio by providing work for female recording engineers. She envisions this company as a place for women to come together to uplift each other in their musical journeys while elevating their scope and quality of work.

When Daria is not working, you can find her in a national park carrying a backpack or at a salsa club enjoying dancing and music.
