2020 ASCAP Columbia University Film Scoring Workshop

Composer Spotlight: Katherine Rufli

Katherine Rufli

New York City based composer and sound designer Katherine Rufli has been scoring anything she could get her hands on since the age of 14. While studying at Berklee College of Music, Katherine has scored films for directors such as Steve McCarten (Faithless) and Daniel Slottje (In Your Area, I Love Your Face And How It Reminds Me Of God). Playing violin from the age of 6, Katherine was surrounded by music all her life. Along with scoring Katherine is a songwriter and has written title songs for films. Her passion for music from a young age has led her on many different paths as a musician.

One of those paths is her band, Vera Kay. The band has been releasing music on all platforms since 2018 and completed a West Coast Tour in 2019. The band is currently working on releasing new music and continues to book tours in the US.

Katherine majored in Electronic Production and Sound Design at Berklee, which led to her current composition project "kittykuu," which showcases a mixture of IDM and cinematic textures mixing the world of sound design with music.
