Kiyoe K D Wellington received her Bachelors of Music Degree in Classical Double Bass Performance from the New England Conservatory in Boston, Massachusetts. Since around the turn of the 20th century, the double bass has been increasingly recognized and utilized by contemporary composers for its ability to produce a plethora of non-traditional sounds, and Kiyoe's fondness for their music sprouted from her focus on music for the solo bassist. Having spent her childhood between Hawaii and Switzerland, Kiyoe's musical practice is influenced by a life spent in awe and appreciation of the natural world.
