This was a audio drama project that I started working on in the summer of 2020 with some friends and colleagues from BU. From the Trick City Productions website: "In a five-part episodic radio thriller, Iris blends cosmic horror and teen drama, telling the bone chilling journey of seventeen-year-old ballerina Isabella, who finds herself in a remote dance academy in the woods, unveiling a dark secret that could change her life forever.  Finding her place with an elite group of friends, Isabella agrees to partake in a ritual rumored to bestow upon them a chance at fame and notoriety. When the halfheartedly-believed ritual becomes wholly realized, Isabella must reckon with her ambition and its consequences."


This project was a great opportunity to practice and hone my dialogue editing, sound design, composition, and mixing skills. The theme music and rehearsal track from Episodes 1 and 2 were composed by Alex Arlotta, but all other transitions, underscores, and incidental music was created and composed by me, which made great practice for the composition work that I hope to do in the future. It was a lot of fun to imagine the world of this school, and source the music and sound effects that would help it come to life.
