Terry Dame is a composer, multi-instrumentalist, instrument builder, circuit bender and educator. She began playing trumpet and piano at age 8 and continued playing into high school. Upon entering college she put music aside to pursue engineering and environmental studies, graduating with a BS in Environmental Planning from the University of Massachusetts. After graduating she couldn’t resist her creative impulses, bought a synthesizer and started composing music and designing sound for theater. In 1985 Ms. Dame moved to New York City, got involved with the WOW Cafe Theater, produced four multi-media concerts and took up the saxophone. She has been performing and composing for film, video, theater, dance and installations ever since.
