Marketer, Performer, Songwriter
Keturah has an MA in music business, marketing, and branding from Berklee College of Music, where she learned from some of the best in the world, like Yvette Noel Shure (publicist for Beyoncé, Prince) and Brian Messenger (Radiohead’s manager). We have her song “Orange 2 Blue” pretty much always on in the office. She lives in Memphis and works at Notes for Notes currently, a non-profit that gives young people access to instruments and recording studios and such.
Andrea De Carlo
Engineer, Producer, Performer
Last year, Andrea won Italy’s prestigious Carlo U. Rossi Award for excellence in engineering. He’s worked at legendary studios such as London Bridge Studio (Pearl Jam), 123 Studios (Florence and the Machine), and Punta Rec (Lana Del Rey). Listen to his music and follow his activities here.
Andrea thinks of himself as a lifelong learner (which means he’s on the right team), and likes to immerse himself into new subjects with a ton of depth. His music teacher used to say something that’s probably familiar to a lot of us: “First, learn the rules. Then try to change them.” (but we assume it was said in Italian).
Composer, Film Scorer, Guitarist
Andre has had placements on major national TV shows on Bravo, CBS Sports, Oprah Winfrey Network, and more. He’s written major orchestral works, including a string quartet for the famous Kalistos Chamber Orchestra, and has toured nationally and around the world as a performer. Listen to his music and follow his activities here.
Andre says one of the biggest challenges he’s overcome was having to compose, orchestrate, mock up, score, prep, and sync 10 minutes of continuous original music for an animated film in college. He broke it up into smaller cues, focusing on Cue #1 first and then Cue #2, until it was more manageable — in the process, demonstrating a key tenet of our Soundfly Mentorship program!
Sound Designer, Engineer, Performer
Jamie has been an audio designer for MIT’s Game Lab, sound designer and performer for Kiran Gandhi, workshop leader in audio production at NYU, studio support specialist at Berklee, sound designer for slot machines, creator of plugins for AIR and AKAI, and an electronic musician with her own solo projects. Listen to her music and follow her activities here.
Here’s how she describes her experience to her students: “My experiences thus far have taken me on tour creating sound and playing keys live for M.I.A.’s world tour drummer, Kiran Gandhi; as the Audio Designer at MIT Game Lab; leading workshops in recording and post production sound at NYU; working with Avid team on Pro Tools 11; rigging studios as a studio support specialist in EPD at Berklee College of Music; working on the AIR team making plugins and AKAI to create hardware; creating sound and music for slot machine games out in Reno; and working on my own beat making/chiptune/trip hop-ish project, The Unicorn Princess. I got my Bachelor’s in Electronic Production & Design from Berklee College of Music in 2012, and look forward to getting my Master’s from NYU in the upcoming years.”
