After playing and programming in synth bands in her teens, she continued to study MIDI-based applications at Baylor University, where she earned a Bachelor’s degree in Music Education. She went on to receive a Master of Music degree in Music Technology Innovation at Berklee Valencia in Spain, where she developed her “Orbit Suit,” using Live and controllers to “remix” a guitar player in real time on stage. This project was featured at Sonar:D in Barcelona, and was also mentioned by Billboard magazine. She has presented and performed at various festivals and conferences including Ableton's Loop Summit, The Association for Popular Music Education Conference, The Music and Entertainment Industry Educators Association Summit, Microsoft’s DigiGirlz Program, MIT’s EmTech España and Musikmesse.

Her Ableton Live specializations include:

  • Synthesis with Analog, Operator, Wavetable and Sampler
  • Complex mapping for performances
  • Beats for beginners/more complex beat scrambling
  • Max for Live programming for beginners
  • Performing with video in Session View using VIZZable devices
  • Performing with Push 1 and Push 2

Misty also has extensive experience working with middle/high school and college students in rock
bands and controller ensembles, plus providing production reinforcement or training in Live for houses of worship. In addition to teaching synthesis, MIDI and Ableton Live at MTSU, she devotes time to the scholarly research of pop music evolution and trends, training producers and developing curriculum. In her spare time, she loves remixing, mashups and sample/granular-based composition. 

Misty is available for Ableton Live/Push workshops or demos, training and consulting.
