Music composer Elle Spencer Lewis will present on the importance of sound in immersive experiences.
Elle was raised in a musical household in Montreal, Canada, first attending the Royal Conservatory Of Music, then going on to study music and theatre at McGill University. She received a full scholarship to study Jazz at Los Angeles College of Music, where she studied with Dorian Holley (Michael Jackson, vocal coach American Idol), Grammy winner Billy Hulting, multiple Grammy award-nominated Tierney Sutton, and Kevyn Lettau.
During the last ten years, she has toured Europe five times, releasing three pop albums, and placed songs in TV shows such as "Missing" and "Friday Night Lights" and most recently the feature "Stronger" starring Jake Gyllenhaal. She has composed music and visuals for multiple media platforms from films, documentaries, and commercials to interactive environments such as Redbull-At-Night and 3D visuals for the Space Shuttle Endeavor opening at the Natural History Museum.
Immediately after Elle's presentation we will have a VR show-and-tell for anyone who would like to display their projects.
