Kallie Marie’s start in audio and music was anything but usual. She actually started out as a ballet dancer and visual artist. As a kid who couldn’t afford her dance lessons she traded time at the dance studio cutting music and creating fades from a record player to tape for the studio owner in exchange for her dance lessons. At 14 she could no longer afford to take dance lessons, but was enrolled in a performing arts high school. She there took up the guitar figuring that music was as close to dance as she could get. She spent all of high school fascinated by rock & roll, and other forms of music, drawing huge inspiration from bands like L7, Nirvana, Bjork, and Danny Elfman. After high school a friend encouraged her to take some recording classes at the local community college. There she found that she was not only good at this melding of technology and art, but that she couldn’t get enough of it. She moved to England and earned her Masters in Music Production/ Composition from the Leeds College of Music. After that she ended up in NYC, and since then has devoted all her time to working as a producer and composer.   Kallie has worked with various artists such as  Jeff Derringer, Charley Hustle, Natalie Mishell, (e)motion Picture, Ashley Hicklin, ROYST, Indirah, and  January Jane.  She also devotes time to producing her own band Explosives For Her Majesty. In addition to music production she also is a freelance composer for film, TV, and Dance and has an interest in creating music and sound design for games.   She has had her music placed in documentaries, and dance concerts alike.  Additionally Kallie is an adjunct faculty  NYU SCPS where she teaches Intro to Audio and Podcasting.  Kallie is also a contributing freelance writer for Sonic Scoop.  She is passionate about music, technology, electronics, art, and video games! You may find her still taking ballet class or consuming as much tea as possible.
