May-Elise Martinsen is a Brooklyn-based composer. Her previous work includes 59 Days in New York, a 9-episode musical webseries that she wrote, produced and crowdfunded through Kickstarter. Selections of 59 Days in New York have appeared at several film festivals and screenings in the NYC area, including the Chain NYC Film Festival, IndieWorks, and Katra Film Series.
