Janine White is a sound designer, composer, and musician, who uses traditional classical musical training combined with various digital techniques to take audio to the highest level in it’s newest evolving environments. 

Her musical roots go back to her childhood lessons in classical piano, which led to a degree in music theory from Wilfrid Laurier University, where she discovered a passion for electro-acoustics and composition. Janine's first forays into the world of sound design began with an early collaboration with graphic artist Vincent Marcone and cellist Kitty Thompson to form the musical trio and art collective “Johnny Hollow”. Together they have produced three full-length music albums, live multimedia performances, internationally award-winning isntallations, and a loyal fan base spanning the globe.

Since then, Janine has made a name for herself as sound editor, sound designer, sound mixer, composer, and arranger in an array of cutting-edge artistic endeavours for a variety of new media, including short films, video games, and interactive websites. Of note,  Janine created the entire soundscape for the National Film Board's Emmy Award-winning online documentary “Highrise: Out My Window”.
