Cacaphonie Tamayo

Dr. Kelsey ‘Cacophonie’ Tamayo is a nerdy ex-classical percussionist who likes to hit things, strum things, and, in general, make noise. Earning multiple music degrees from Peabody Institute and a Doctor of Musical Arts from Michigan State University, Cacophonie uses their extensive knowledge of music to create a wonderful mix of classical and folk/singer-songwriter styles. They recently moved from Mid-Missouri, where they were the percussion professor at Drury University and percussionist/keyboardist for the Springfield-Drury Civic Orchestra, Springfield Regional Opera, and Taneycomo Festival Orchestra. 

Currently, Cacophonie is the drummer for the Power Converters Band in Hello Earth’s “Wars Outdoors: A New Hope in the Park" and a percussionist for the Seattle Video Game Orchestra and Choir. They are a member of the Social Justice Bards, a community of musicians, story tellers, and creatives that regularly stream and collaborate on Twitch and IRL.
