Drum & Lace is a composer & performer that writes & creates music for film, fashion & media. 

Drum & Lace, aka 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 NARS, Always, Squarespace, Saudade Theatre, Tanya Taylor and Girls Who Code. Her feature-length film credits include "The First Monday in May" (dir Andrew Rossi) , "The Gospel According to André" (dir Kate Novack), ”Invisible Hands" (dir Shraysi Tandon), upcoming HBO doc “At The Heart of Gold” (dir Erin Lee Carr, premiered at Tribeca Film Festival 2019) and AppleTV+-series “Dickinson” (created by Alena Smith). In 2019, Drum & Lace was commissioned to compose a new contemporary dance piece for Heidi Duckler Dance, performed at the Ebb & Flow Festival 2019.

Drum & Lace’s performances often include elements of sound installation and spatial audio, most recently with events such as The Echo Society VI: Family (USA ), an installation/performance at Pulse Art Fair Miami 2018 (USA), a Quadraphonic Soundbath alongside Suzanne Ciani’s Quad LP  & an ambient re-interpetation of a Debussy opera titled “Debussy e la Natura” at Festa Dell'Opera 2018 (Italy). She was part of Ableton Loop 2018 (Los Angeles, CA) and held workshops/panels and performed at Moogfest 2019 (Durham, NC).

Drum & Lace is based in Los Angeles, CA.
