Twist Online : Who or what inspired you to get into music industry?
Allie : I’ve been listening Neoclassical music like Emma Shapplin, or some of Sarah Brightman’s collaboration with Enigma, Freddie Mercury’s work with Montserrat Caballe.
From there I decided that this is the production that I wanna do to merge techno and electronic with orchestral arrangement which can work with any genre.
