Amy Altadonna

    sound designer and composer


I use sound, music and silence to enhance storytelling and to evoke emotional and physiological responses in my audience. I feel that by understanding text, performance, collaborators, and audience, I can bring my musicality to bear on the ears and the psyches of my listeners, creating physiological experiences that can be aching, melancholy, terrible and sublime.

I have a special interest in education and mentorship, and have worked extensively in university settings.

My work has taken me across the country from Alaska to New York City, and has introduced me to countless friends and collaborators over the years.
