Ieva has always had an interest in music and sound, from learning violin as a child in Kaunas, Lithuania through to her teenage years when she discovered electronic music and up to the present day in her work as a composer and producer.
She graduated with a 1st in Electronic Music from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama and is now working full time as a composer and sound designer at the Brains and Hunch studios. Outside of the studio, she frequently collaborates with her multimedia collective - Syntrex and releases music and performs under her pseudonym Piksel.
Ieva is also actively involved in education - she teaches Electronic Music at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, as well as running yearly summer courses for young people in Music Production.
Outside of work, you can find Ieva enjoying a good bowl of ramen, having a read or tending to her plants.
