ABOUT

I enhance journeys, increase emotional connection and fuel narratives by marrying stories with sound.

Biography

My name is Katie and I'm a 23-year old composer and sound designer currently working for Rare. I graduated with a First Class Honours in music from Sir Paul McCartney's prestigious Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts in 2016. A lover of music from a young age, I am also a guitarist and bassist and have played in a wealth of bands throughout my music career. At university, I received a rounded education in music performance, production, business, composition and also discovered my passion for audio in the media.

Shortly after graduation, I was privileged enough to be the first ever recipient of UK Music's 'Outstanding Contribution to Music' graduate award, and equally honoured the following year to receive King and Diversi's scholarship to attend the Game Developer's Conference 2017. As a composer, I have scored the music for award-winning independent film Deep Breaths, alongside several other student media projects. I also composed the music for my university graduation ceremony, attended by Sir Paul McCartney. Alongside this, I teach music, write for the ever-growing game audio website The Sound Architect' and am continually developing my craft in pursuit of a full time career in audio.

I had the pleasure of working with Katie on my feature film, 'Deep Breaths'. Her professionalism and creativity made working with her an absolute pleasure. She delivered high quality pieces on time, and made sure any notes were followed with exceptional detail. A true master of her craft, I give her the highest recommendation.

Gareth Fient

Director/Producer/Editor
Katie is a true wizard of music, constantly blowing me away with the awesome compositions she produces. She's incredibly hardworking, always professional and an asset to any team! She has a truly great passion for her work, and I can't wait to work with her again in the future.

Barney Oram

Sound Designer
Working with Katie was a rewarding experience, she is a talented, co-operative and enthusiastic creative. All in all, a pleasure to work with.

Matt Neave

Director/Editor
Katie is amazingly talented under pressure and adaptable to new scenarios with new people. She developed fascinating audio for a video game in a 72-hour game jam. Quality and timely delivered work.

Ben Thompson

Director/Developer
I contacted Katie to score the music for the release trailer of my second book. I thought communicating the sound I wanted to someone else would be a difficult task, but Katie was able to capture that sound on her first try. I couldn't be happier with the piece I received and couldn't recommend Katie enough. She's reliable, passionate and takes feedback and ideas very well. I look forward to working with her again in the future.
