Bookmark and Share

During the Toronto International Film Festival, the husband and wife found themselves walking the red carpet for the screening of The Gospel According to André, a fashion documentary that follows former Vogue editor André Leon Talley, for which they composed the score. But creating beautiful music together is nothing new for this duo. In fact, the two have worked together on-and-off since just after they graduated from Boston's Berklee College of Music in 2008. Sofia and Ian, who have both also performed separately as musicians (Sofia under the moniker Drum & Lace and Ian as a former guitarist and keyboardist for Passion Pit), even formed their own band at one point (and yes, we already requested a reunion).

Sofia, who was born and raised in Florence, Italy, and Ian, who hails from Chicago's Highland Park neighborhood, relocated to their current residence in Eagle Rock from a stint in Brooklyn and one of the things they're most appreciating about their new city is the ability to work from home. In addition to providing plenty of space for their two pups Lupo and Fiamma, their home allows for two work areas, an office and a freestanding studio filled with analogue synths most music geeks would lust after. The ultra-cool couple recently let us into both spaces to chat about the best-and worst-parts of working with your spouse and how they keep their work areas inspiring enough to spark productivity.
