FROM ROCK DRUMMER TO SCI-FI OPERA FILMMAKER

Libertaria Chronicles

Like any little girl, I wanted to be a famous rock drummer when I grew up. I drove my parents crazy drumming away in the garage, the attic, or wherever they could stash me and my mess of percussion instruments away. As I got older (I’d say wiser, but that’s not really the case) I started studying composition with Dr. Clare Shore in sunny South Florida. When I transferred to the University of South Florida and joined SYCOM (an avant-garde collective of insane arts students and electronic musicians) I knew I had found my calling – experimental intermedia (or mixing video with electronic music and drums).

I traded in my drumsticks for a mouse and followed my love of rhythm, media technology, and science fiction to create groundbreaking futurist and sometimes downright creepy works like World Order #5, virelaan, and Libertaria: The Virtual Opera, the world’s first feature-length machinima opera. I combine futuristic fantasy in innovative “groundbreaking” hybrid works. I completed my M.M. in Music Technology, with an additional year of Film studies at Florida International with Dr. Kristine Burns, Frederick Kaufman, Jacek Klasinski, and Dr. Orlando Garcia. Since then I have composed over two hundred works, produced over a hundred films and videos, and written dozens of books including the sci-fi novel the Libertaria Chronicles, based on my opera Libertaria.


The future of music is now!
