Composer of Drum & Lace

Sofia is a music composer and sound designer for fashion, film, and media. Yes, she composes music—she’s that cool. She recently scored the acclaimed fashion documentary, “The First Monday in May” about the year-long preparation of the Met Gala. She and her husband, also a composer, share a music studio at their home in Eagle Rock, which we had the pleasure of touring.
