Kelley DiPasquale

Audio Engineering Fellow

Kelley DiPasquale is thrilled to be a new Michigan resident as she embarks on her new adventure as the audio engineering fellow at Interlochen Public Radio and Interlochen Center for the Arts.

Kelley’s passion for audio engineering has launched a vibrant career in academia and on professional stages in the United States and Canada.

Her keen sense for dynamic sound has led her to such prestigious institutions as the Banff Centre for the Arts and Creativity and the Aspen Music Festival and earned her acceptance into one of the world’s most lauded audio production programs at the University of Stavanger in Norway as well as the Master of Audio Arts program at Syracuse University.

A protégé of Douglas McKinnie, who held the post of chief engineer of live sound at Tanglewood for two decades, Kelley’s philosophy of sound engineering has been shaped and molded by some of the greatest technicians in the world of classical music.

With excellent mentorship and as a natural explorer, Kelley is a pioneer in the field of binaural recording.

After testing a homemade binaural sound recording head at McGill University in Montreal, exploring spatial hearing and three-dimensional sound, she presented her research on this innovative technique at the U.S. convention of the Audio Engineering Society in New York.

She has published several scholarly papers on her work.

As a classically trained musician herself, Kelley has a zeal for the music making process, collaborating with artists to capture their musical goals through technology in an exciting and fulfilling exchange. She hopes to bring her joy of music making and academic rigor to her work at Interlochen, with the goal of producing the highest quality results and continuing innovation in the field of sound engineering.
