Sarah’s Bio

Your major: Media Music: AAS

Your hometown: Glendale, CA

Where do you live now? Sandy, UT

What are you passionate about? I’m passionate about electronic music and synthesizers. I love creating new sounds with my synthesizers and composing energetic dance music!

What is your favorite class (or classes) at SLCC? My favorite class definitely has to be MUSC 2540 – Advanced Musical Synthesis, Sampling, & Sound Design. It taught me the foundation for synthesis, important history on famous synthesizers, and paved the way for me to continue learning and mastering synthesis.

Which actor/actress would play you in your life movie? I think Emma Watson would play me in my life movie.

Where do you see yourself in five years? In five years, I see myself touring the world, performing my techno and new beat music for large crowds, and achieving milestones!

If you could have a superpower, what would it be? If I have a superpower, I would want to be able to make all people live forever. The party would truly never stop!

Something about you that other people would be surprised to know: I enjoy writing fiction stories, creating and drawing concept art for my characters, as well as landscapes, and integrate them with the music I compose.
