I’m excited by variety, by work that plays with structure and sound, and by projects that think creatively about sound. And sometimes, I enjoy just cleaning tape and working with dialogue.

About Adriene

I am a sound artist, sound designer, field recordist and audio engineer. I work with clients to develop thoughtful, sound-focused podcasts, multimedia projects and radio broadcasts. Clients have included WNYC, Vox Media, Apple Podcasts, Audible, Spotify along with independent production teams working across the industry. I’ve worked on award winning series including Finding Tamika (2022, Molten Heart & Audible) and Copper & Heat (2022). I have thousands of hours of experience cutting tape, cleaning dialogue, working with music and developing soundscapes for everything from documentary to guided meditation to maximalist comedy. 

My commercial work is informed by a creative practice in sound. My work has appeared in exhibitions, on podcasts and in broadcasts including through Lucia festival by Radio Papesse and WBEZ’s Re:Sound. My longest running creative project is a weekly experimental-travel series called The Blind Tourist on WFMU. 

I’ve taught creative audio and sound design at The Salt Institute for Documentary Study at the Maine College of Art, The Fleet Library at Rhode Island School of Design, UnionDocs and through individual training sessions.
