He has also composed for film, television and radio. The Gary Sill Music Studio in Vancouver, which finished construction in 2006, was conceived and designed as a sound environment for digitally recording acoustic performances of jazz and formal music. Studies at the University of Calgary included composition with Luigi Zaninelli and piano with Gloria Saarinen.

While working at the Centre, he studied composition with Steve Reich, John Cage, R.

Sill counts as important influences Sufi teachers and guides, including Shamcher Bryn Beorse and the French Sufi composer Hidayat Inayat-Khan whose thirty year friendship has deepened and directed Sill's understanding and practice of music.
