Who am I?
My name is Kylie Balentine. I am an artist and violist. I began this long term relationship with music making when I picked up the viola in 4th grade. While not the most popular instrument, I enjoy playing it and continue to do so in my college orchestra. I am currently studying at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design. Listening to music has always brought some kind of imagery into my head and inspires a lot of my art.
Why music tech?
I believe my main inspiration for taking music tech was my desire to learn another instrument. I found it difficult to learn and read a clef that I am not used to and getting a new instrument is expensive and not useful when I do not play it much. Music tech gives me the freedom to play the sound of any instrument I can think of on my computer without needing knowledge of how to play a traditional instrument.
