Raised on a farm in Idaho, Elise Baldwin now resides in San Francisco. She holds degrees in Film/Video production from UCSC and Electronic Music from Mills College.

She has spent much of the past decade working as a sound designer, multimedia director, recording engineer, and digital video editor on commercial and educational projects. She has designed sound and created musical compositions for many theater and film productions, and had the good fortune to collaborate with many talented Bay Area performers, dancers, and theater companies such as Gigi Otalvaro-Hormillosa, Sini Anderson, Fresh Meat, and Campo Santo. Active in the Bay Area experimental music scene, Elise focuses on collaborative music ventures and solo intermedia performance, appearing recently at the San Francisco Electronic Music Festival, Edgetone Music Festival, the Brutal Sound FX Festival, E.S.P. Media Lounge, CalArts CEAIT Festival and the National Queer Arts Festival. Her work has been featured on compilations Women Take Back The Noise, Sound Migrations, and Aural Fixation I and II.
