Drum & Lace, a.k.a. Sofia Hultquist, is an Italian composer, sound artist and performer that writes and creates music for film and media. Raised in Florence, Italy she received her Undergraduate Degree from Berklee College of Music (Film Scoring & Composition) and a Masters Degree (Music Technology & Composition) from New York University.

Inspired by interesting sounds and cinematic elements, Drum & Lace melds together sampled field recordings and lush layers of synths to create densely textural and beat-heavy music, greatly drawing from film music, music concrete and modern electronica. Her ambient and chamber work also gathers great inspiration from nature and natural sound, as well as the juxtaposition of unlikely sounds with one another.

Her composition work includes writing for fashion, dance, theater, and commercials for clients such as NARS, Always, Tanya Taylor, Girls Who Code and most recently composing music for Saudade Theatre’s production of ‘The Constitution’. Her feature-length film credits include "The First Monday in May" (dir Andrew Rossi) , "The Gospel According to André" (dir Kate Novack), “Love & Bananas” (dir Ashley Bell), ”Invisible Hands" (dir Shraysi Tandon out in theaters November 2018) & upcoming doc “At The Heart of Gold” (dir Erin Lee Carr).

Recent performances include The Echo Society VI: Family (USA ), Immersive Quad Soundbath alongside Suzanne Ciani’s Quad LP concert at Echo Park Rising (USA) & “Debussy e la Natura” at Festa Dell'Opera 2018 (Italy). She was also a featured panelist and participant at the Ableton Loop 2018 conference in Los Angeles, CA.
